Sheriff’s detectives are looking for a man responsible for kidnapping a seven year-old girl in south Sacramento this past weekend. The incident occurred in broad daylight on a public street, and investigators fear that the suspect may attempt to seek additional victims.

Shortly after 1:00 p.m. on May 11, 2013, the victim was walking with her mother in the 5300 block of 47th Avenue. The suspect pulled alongside the victim, grabbed her, and placed her in the trunk of his car, before driving away. The victim’s mother began screaming, which alerted a nearby resident who called 911 to report the incident.

The suspect is described as a male between 25 and 35 years of age. He has light-brown skin, and is believed to be 5’10” to 6’ tall, and weigh between 170 and 190 pounds. He has black, shoulder-length hair, which was worn either in braids or dreadlocks. At the time of this incident, he was wearing a black shirt with a white, printed design on the front. The suspect’s vehicle was described as a dark green or blue 4-door sedan with tinted windows.
