Auburn Man Facing Felony Kidnapping And Assault Charges

An Auburn man facing felony kidnapping and assault charges is set to return to court next week. 

Placer County authorities say Yonel Hernandez-Velasco made his first court appearance yesterday.  He was arrested Saturday after he allegedly grabbed a three-year-old girl by the hand and attempted to drag her away from her mother. 

The suspect was detained after the girl's father punched him in the face. 

Hernandez-Velasco, who was in possession of handcuffs and tried to use them as a weapon, remains in jail on $1.2-million bail.
