Riverside: 2 Men Sought in Possible Abduction of Girl Sunday Evening


SUSPICIOUS CIRCUMSTANCES INVESTIGATION RIVERSIDE, CA – The Riverside Police Department is conducting a suspicious circumstances investigation in the 6500 block of Doolittle Avenue, located in the Airport neighborhood of Riverside. At approximately 7:35 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, 2019, our Public Safety Communications Center received a call of a possible abduction in front of the apartment complex at this location. The caller stated two male subjects grabbed a Hispanic female juvenile and attempted to put her in the trunk of their vehicle. The juvenile may have fought with the subjects and they then forced her in the back seat of the car and drove away. Surveillance video from the complex corroborates what the caller witnessed. (Video can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTzhtZ4AEjM) The juvenile is described as a Hispanic female between the ages of 10 and 15 years old, and last seen wearing a red or pink “tankini” style swimsuit. The male subjects were described as Hispanic, both with short hair or shaved heads, black T-shirts, dark shorts, white socks, and white shoes. One subject appeared to have a white image on the back of his shirt that depicted the “Mother Mary” praying. The vehicle involved appears to be a newer Nissan Altima or Maxima, chrome trim, black wheels, dark tinted windows, minor collision damage on the right rear quarter-panel, with a possible California license plate that began with the characters 7UH. Detectives from the Robbery – Homicide Unit, along with Specialists from the Forensics Unit, responded to assist in the investigation. So far, there have not been any reports of missing or runaway juveniles matching the possible victim’s description in this investigation, which is still ongoing. Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact Detective Brett Stennett at (951) 353-7213 or bstennett@riversideca.gov, or Detective Dan Mercadefe at (951) 353-7103 or dmercadefe@riversideca.gov.
