2 Men Sought in Attempted Kidnapping Near CSUN Campus

Police at Cal State Northridge were searching for two men who allegedly attempted to kidnap a woman near the campus dorms earlier this week.

The incident occurred about 4:30 p.m. on Thursday near the southeast corner of Lindley Avenue and Lassen Street, according to the Cal State Northridge Department of Police Services.

The victim was walking along Lassen Street when a vehicle approached her and slowly drove next to her, police said. An unknown male riding as a passenger attempted to talk to the victim. When the woman ignored him, the passenger exited the vehicle and chased after her.

The uninjured woman was able to outrun the man and made it to a family member who was waiting for her further down Lassen Street, according to police.

The man left in an unknown direction. 

The passenger was described as a Hispanic man in his mid-30s, 5-foot-10, weighing about 130 pounds. He had a dark complexion, shaved head, slim build and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and dark blue jeans.

The driver had a similar description and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt. 

The vehicle was as an older model, white Toyota Camry with tinted windows, and rust spots on the roof.

Anyone with information was asked to contact CSUN police at 818-677-2111.
