Authorities investigate an attempted kidnapping on a female jogger in Moreno Valley


MORENO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – Riverside County authorities are searching for a motorist who attempted to kidnap a woman jogger.

The Sheriff’s Department says a 25-year-old woman was jogging in Moreno Valley Thursday evening when she noticed she was being followed by a man driving a pickup truck.

She later saw the pickup parked near an intersection and as she passed by the driver stepped out and confronted her.

The man attempted to carry the woman toward his vehicle but she struggled and managed to escape and call 911 as the man fled.

The vehicle was described as a two-tone green over tan, mid-1990s Ford F-150 regular cab pickup. The Sheriff’s Department says the Moreno Valley City-Wide Camera System recorded images of the vehicle, with a large piece of furniture strapped in its bed.
