UPDATE -- Police believe there might have been a second sighting of the suspect who tried to force a 10 year-old in his car. The second incident happened at around three this afternoon when two female children walking home were aggressively approached by a vehicle, which might have been the same one. The girls were walking home from school on southbound on 11th Street at Vance Way. The children described the car as traveling southbound on 11th street. . The children described the vehicle as a sedan, greenish/bluish in color and possibly with some black on it. The children provided a partial plate with the numbers of 372 contained within the registration. The "older male" driver did not say anything to the children or attempt to abduct them. There are some similarities in the car description given by these children to the attempted kidnapping case reported earlier today.

Quickly children run to the gun free zone. The bad men won't be allowed to there. The signs will make them stop. Run, run while you can.

Human trafficking attempt? I grew up in this area attending Greenbrae and Alice Maxwell. Why are they trying to take our kids? Gang activity or just Creepers? Everyone in this nice- working family neighborhood, look out your window and keep track of the kids. We must let these lazy stupid douches know that they don't belong here. They should go back to the sewers that they stink of.
