Possible Attempted Kidnapping Near Clovis North

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A misunderstanding or an attempted kidnapping at Clovis North High School Wednesday afternoon. Fresno Police say a very frightened 14-year-old girl is now safe at home. What detectives are trying to figure out is whether a 22-year-old man tried to kidnap her by the Clovis North campus or was he just clowning around.

He's in hot water and he could be facing an attempted kidnapping charge after he talks to detectives downtown. Fresno Police were called just after 4:30 Wednesday afternoon.

A 14-year-old girl told them a man in a green Mercedes tried to kidnap her. Lt. Anthony Martinez says the man was sitting in his car in the school parking lot when police arrived. "Based on what the victim has told us this could be something as severe as maybe an attempted kidnapping. This could also be something close to a misunderstanding when the male was simply trying to get the female's attention."

Police also searched the man's car and then called a service to have it towed to an impound yard. Right now it's a she said, he said case. The man hasn't been booked into jail. Because the incident happened at Clovis North, school safety always comes into focus.
