Kidnapping attempts near Citrus College investigated

Glendora police are investigating two attempted kidnappings of women near Citrus College that authorities say appear to be related.

A woman called police Saturday to report that after a Citrus College football game she was approached in a stadium parking lot by a silver, four-door Infiniti sedan driven by a man with four passengers inside, according to a Glendora police report.

One of the passengers asked if she wanted a ride. When she declined, the man got out of a backseat door and walked toward her.

She quickened her pace, but he grabbed her around the waist, told her she should go with them and grabbed her buttocks, the report says.

She pushed him away and he grabbed her arm, but she pulled away and he got in the car and drove off, according to the report.

Police at Citrus College and Azusa Pacific University as well as Azusa police were notified of the incident.

Then on Sunday, a woman who lives across from Citrus College reported that she experienced a similar incident Sept. 11, according to the police report.

She told police that a silver sport sedan stopped in front of her home and that a passenger got out and approached her in the driveway. As he walked toward her, she ran into her house.

Glendora police are asking anyone with information about these incidents to call (626) 914-8290.
