Police are on the lookout tonight for a man that attempted to kidnap a 15-year-old girl.
The 15 year old teen was in the area walking to pick up her little sister from school she was able to get away, but so did the suspect and now the residents in the area are on high alert.
A man that lives in the neighborhood said he has little brothers and will be cautious to let them outside alone.
The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 20’s to 30’s with a tall, skinny build, about 5’9 to 6 foot with short facial hair and a piercing in his right ear.
Police officials describe the suspect’s car as a red two door older model with a black rear window cover.
A thousand dollar reward is being awarded to someone who can offer information that will lead to an arrest. People are taking it into their own hands to bring the suspect to justice.
A man that lives in the area said, “We have seen and heard the car, so we are trying to see if we can figure out who it is can do a citizens arrest for an award.”
Leanne Worthen with Yuma Police Department encourages people to call, “If they’ve seen anything in that area or if they live in that area, we want people to call, because we want to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”
