Subject:     Police Seek Attempted Kidnapping Suspect


San Francisco police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man wanted in an attempted kidnapping of an 11-year-old girl that occurred on Wednesday, June 16 on the 400 block of

Mansell Street

In that incident a man in a red pick up truck drove up alongside the girl as she was walking on the sidewalk and ordered her to get into the truck. When the girl refused, he made a U-turn and continued to follow the girl.  When the girl began to walk in the opposite direction, the driver put the truck into reverse and continued to follow her, ordering her a second time to get into the truck.  The girl fled into a park at that location and the suspect drove away.

The suspect is described as a white male, 48-50 years old, balding with silver hair on the sides, wearing a long-sleeved shirt and black jeans.  The pick up was an older model, red two-door.

Persons with information are urged to contact the Juvenile Division, 558-5500.
