The Thousand Oaks Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a possible suspect and/or vehicle in a reported kidnap attempt. 


On October 2, 2017, at about 4:30 p.m., a female juvenile was running on Townsgate Road near Triunfo Canyon Road in Thousand Oaks, when an unknown while male between the ages of 30 to 40, bald, with a thick brown beard, approximately six feet tall asked the victim to get into his car.  The female juvenile refused and continued to walk west on Townsgate Road. 


The unknown male stopped his vehicle, exited and approached the victim.  A physical altercation occurred between the victim and suspect.  The victim struggled with the suspect and was able to free herself and run away. 


The victim described the suspect vehicle as white and resembling an older Range Rover, with possibly the first three digits of the license plate being '7TY', with a sticker on the front windshield which appeared as if a baseball had cracked through the glass.


If you have any additional information related to this crime please contact the Thousand Oaks Police Department, Detective Tim Lohman @ 805-494-8232.
