On Friday, November 4th, a 6-year-old boy escaped after being taken from his front yard. The boy was reportedly playing outside his home at about 4 p.m. He stated that a man grabbed him around his stomach and covered his mouth with the other. The boy began biting the man and kicking, causing the kidnapper to fall and drop him. The boy immediately ran home and his mother called 911. A drawing of the suspect has been released. He was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and blue jeans and is Hispanic. Anyone with any information regarding the incident has been urged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff.
Kidnapping and attempted kidnapping is a very serious offense. Any removal of an individual against their will could result in a federal conviction. As these crimes can be investigated by agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it is important that you have strong legal representation if you are accused of such a crime. Aggravated kidnapping involves another crime like rape or robbery and could lead to up to twenty years in prison. If you have been charged with kidnapping, a Los Angeles kidnapping attorney from Martinian & Associates could fight to get your case dropped.
