Father Interrupts Kidnapping Attempt in Vista

Vista CA— Late last night, June 17, 2019  just after 10:30, San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputies from the Vista Station responded to the 1300 block of Barbara Drive to investigate a report of interrupted kidnapping.

Deputies were told by the family that the father saw a male carrying his two year-old child out of the residence. The father confronted the male, who ran away leaving the child behind.

The suspect was last seen jumping the fence of the resident’s yard in an unknown direction. Deputies established a perimeter and conducted a search of the area, with the assistance of a K-9 team.
The suspect has not been found at this time.

The suspect was described as an unknown race male, about 6 foot tall, 180 pounds, wearing a black sweater, black hat, and white shoes which were possibly Converse brand shoes.
No additional suspect description or information has been established.

Although there is limited information, the Sheriff’s Department wants the community to be aware of this investigation, which is still underway, for public safety.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Sheriff’s Department at 858-565-5200.
