Police Investigating Possible Connection between Child Annoyance and Attempted Rancho Cordova Kidnapping

On August 24, 2010, at 11:52 a.m., Rancho Cordova Police Department (RCPD) officers responded to Williamson Elementary School to speak to two students who told school officials they had been offered a ride by a stranger as they were walking home from school on Pinturo Way. The students, one 8-year-old girl and one 10-year-old boy, described the suspect only as a white male adult in a white van. The officers were unable to locate the suspect or his vehicle.

Folsom Cordova Unified School District administrators notified parents of the incident using the Edulink Message system.

On August 27, 2010, at 8:12 a.m., RCPD officers responded to Williamson Elementary School regarding the attempted kidnapping of a 9-year-old female student who was walking to school in the area of Rosado Way and Benito Drive when a white van driven by a white male adult stopped near her. She told officers a Hispanic male, who was a passenger in the van, got out of the van and grabbed her by the wrist.

The young girl was able to break free from the suspect’s grasp and run to the school where she immediately reported the incident. She described the Hispanic male as being between 18- and 25-years-old, with a long black ponytail. He was wearing a white tank top and dark sweatpants. The school district also notified parents of this incident using the Edulink Message System.

Police are investigating the possible link between the two incidents because of the similar descriptions of the suspect vehicle in each case.

Anyone with information regarding these cases is urged to call the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department at (916) 874-5115, or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP; or send a text message tip by texting to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter SACTIP followed by the tip information. Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000
