San Ramon Police search for man who tried kidnapping 13-year-old girl

SAN RAMON (KRON) - A mother of a 13-year-old girl reported to the San Ramon Police Department on Friday that a man attempted to kidnap her daughter. 

Around 5:30 p.m. the girl was walking in the area of the 500 block of Fallen Leaf Circle when the man pulled up in his car next to her. 

Officials say the man reportedly driving a white 4-door car, maybe a Nissan Rogue or Versa, said to the girl, "Your dad asked me to pick you up and drop you off at your house.”

The man opened the door for her to get in but she declined to get in the car, according to authorities.

The suspect proceeded to reach across the front seat to try to pull her into the car by her clothes, but she managed to run away and hide in some bushes. 

When the girl saw the man drive away, police say she called her parents.

The 13-year-old was not hurt. 

Police searched the area where the incident was reported, but they were unable to find the car. 

The suspect is described as an Asia Indian man between the ages of 35- and 50-years-old. The girl said he had a dark complexion with a light blue circle around his eyes, had shaggy hair and a mustache. 

According to officials, the man spoke with an Asia Indian accent and a lisp. He was wearing a grayish-blue colored shirt with a Nike logo and a black hooded jacket. 

The girl said the man had a ring on his right hand with a design of two overlapping snakes. 

The white car is described to have dark tinted windows and a yellow star on the front windshield.

A partial license plate given was 7HM...6.
