UC Davis police have released a sketch of the suspect in an attempted abduction that occurred Sunday in the campus’ Orchard Park neighborhood.
According to police, the suspect was riding a bicycle in the area of Orchard Park Drive and Orchard Park Circle at about noon when he approached a 10-year-old girl and asked where her parents were. When she didn’t respond, the man reached toward her and said, “Come home with me.”
The girl fled home following the incident.
Police describe the suspect as a white male, 19 to 20 years old, with “cloudy” gray eyes, several piercings on his upper right ear, and a black oval inserted in his left earlobe. He also had a nose piercing and several tattoos — a rose on his upper left arm, a cross on his right forearm and a swastika on his left calf with the word “love” written in black pen.
The suspect wore a yellow T-shirt, black shorts, black lace-up shoes and a black and orange baseball cap worn backwards. He was last seen riding a black Magna mountain bike toward Russell Park.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the UC Davis Police Department at 530-752-1230.
