Suspect Arrested after Trying to Abduct 2-Year-old Child from Vehicle in Vista

Vista CA— On Saturday, September 19, 2020 just before 3:00 pm, a woman, her fiancée and their two small children were backing out of a parking stall in the parking lot of the Costco located in 1700 block of Hacienda Drive, in Vista. Adam Glavinic (DOB 02/10/1983) opened the rear vehicle door and attempted to remove a 2-year-old child.

The parents exited the vehicle and confronted Glavinic. The incident drew a crowd and a physical confrontation occurred between the father and Glavinic. An off-duty Sheriff’s employee and other witnesses intervened, separating the two until deputies from the Vista Sheriff’s Station arrived on the scene.

Glavinic was subsequently arrested for attempted kidnapping and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was booked into the Vista Detention Facility.

The investigation is ongoing
