Mother, child describe kidnapping attempt

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A suspect is still on the loose after a reported kidnapping in central Lubbock.

A 7-year-old girl told police a man pulled up beside her as she was walking near Clapp Park around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

She said the man offered her money to get in his car. After she got in, she says he made her touch him. She said he tried to touch her, but she moved his hand out of the way. She said she then asked if she could get out and the man let her go.

The mother of that little girl is asking the community for help to catch this man.

"My boyfriend chased him down. He said he was in his mid 20s. He wore glasses and he's Hispanic," Jessica Garcia said.

Authorities say the suspect was driving a black SUV with a luggage rack.

The little girl says there is a toy zebra hanging from the rear-view mirror.

 If you can help police identify this suspect, you are asked to call Crime Line at 741-1000.

In the meantime, Garcia urges parents to keep their children close at all times.

"Just keep an eye and don't let your kids out of your sight. If they're outside playing, you got to watch them because there are crazy people out there," Garcia said.
