Riverside police seek leads in child abduction case
Riverside police are searching for a man who allegedly abducted a 9-year-old girl over the weekend.
The girl showed up in a Riverside neighborhood early Sunday morning, disoriented and knocking on doors to get help. She told police she’d been asleep with two siblings at her home in a nearby neighborhood when an unidentified man climbed through a window and carried her away. Police said the girl’s mother, a single parent, was not home at the time. The girl said she’d been taken in a car and later dumped out.
The girl was taken to Loma Linda Medical Center and was listed in serious condition with injuries related to the abduction, police said. Anyone with information is asked to contact Riverside Police Det. Roberta Hopewell at (951) 353-7124.
