2 Women Sought in Attempted Abduction Near School

SANTA ANA, Calif. (KTLA) — Police are asking for the public’s help in locating two women wanted in the attempted kidnapping of a 7-year old boy on Monday.

The boy was walking home from Newhope Elementary School in the area of 4500 W. Kent when he spotted a gold minivan parked nearby.

The passenger in the van called to the boy trying to lure him with ice cream.

The driver told the passenger to “hurry and just get him in the car.”

The passenger reached for the boy, but he was able to back up and run away. Both suspects spoke in Spanish.

The vehicle is described as a 2000-2007 gold minivan with dirty rims, possible lower wooden trim and rust marks, a sliding side door, similar body style of a Toyota Sienna.

Three other 6th grade students also saw the vehicle parked in this same location on Monday.

The vehicle was also seen on Sunday, in the same area, by one of the students.

The suspects are both female Hispanics around 40-years old. The driver had a long ponytail and wrinkles on her face.

The passenger had short brown wavy hair and numerous freckles or moles on her face.
