Attempted Kidnapping In Fair Oaks School Leads Police To Ask For Help

Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies are looking for a man who allegedly attempted to kidnap a teenage girl at a Fair Oaks school. Police say the alleged attempted kidnapper targeted a girl who had been separated from her friends in the school's hallway while classes were in session, local NBC affiliate KCRA reports.

In the late morning of March 2 at La Vista Center School along Bannister Road, deputies say that a teenage girl was approached by a man who grabbed her by the ankles and dragged her six to eight feet before he fled the scene on a bicycle, Fox40.com reports.

Patch Fair Oaks-Carmichael reports that police are also seeking to question a second man as a witness, whom they do not consider to be a suspect.
