Girl escapes attempted kidnapping in San Ramon

Police are searching for a man suspected of trying to lure a 13-year-old girl into his car Friday evening in San Ramon.

The girl was walking in the 500 block of Fallen Leaf Circle about 5:30 p.m. when a man driving a white car pulled up and told her "Your dad asked me to pick you up and drop you off at your house," San Ramon police said.

The victim refused to get in when the suspect, while still inside the car, opened the door for her. The man then reached across and tried to grab the girl by her clothing, police said.

She ran away and hid in some nearby bushes until the suspect had left the area and then phoned her parents, according to police.

Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect or his car.

The suspect is described as an South Asian Indian male between 35 to 50 years old. The girl told police he has a dark complexion with a light blue circle around one of his eyeballs, between the white portion and the iris, shaggy hair and a mustache. 

The suspect had an accent and a lisp, police said. He was wearing a grayish blue shirt with a white Nike logo on it and a black hooded jacket. The girl also said the suspect was wearing a ring on his right hand with a design of two overlapping snakes.

The suspect's vehicle is described by the victim as possibly a white Nissan 4-door hatchback, similar to a Rogue or Versa, with dark tinted back passenger windows and a yellow star with a smiley face on the front windshield. A partial license plate was provided as 7HM....6.

Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to contact the San Ramon Police Department at (925) 973-2779.
