Interrupted Kidnapping in Vista


On June 17th at about 2238 hours, deputies responded to the 1300 block of Barbara Drive in the city of Vista, to
investigate a report of interrupted kidnapping.
Deputies were told by the family 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 we have 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.
