Billie Fenter, 40, allegedly tried to “lure” a 15-year-old into the black four-door Nissan sedan he was driving around 12:30 p.m. Sunday in the area of Esplanade and San Jacinto avenues, which is near fast food restaurants and other businesses.

Riverside County sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene and spoke with witnesses before finding and arresting Fenter on suspicion of annoying or molesting a child.

Fenter, however, posted bail the next day and on Tuesday, authorities received a report of an attempted kidnapping of a woman under similar circumstances near the same intersection.

That victim identified Fenter as the perpetrator, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Authorities asked the public’s help early Wednesday morning for help finding him. Around 11:10 a.m., the Sheriff’s Department announced that he has been detained.

The Nissan sedan he was using has the Arizona plate number CEJ2788, officials previously said.
