Police release rendering of man who tried grabbing girl
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A computer-generated composite image was released Wednesday of a man wanted for attempted kidnapping and annoying a child.

A girl reported she was riding her bike on Saturday on the 4800 block of Baybrook Way, near Harris and Stine, when a man drove up and tried luring her into his car. The girl refused, but the man tried grabbing the girl's hand, according to police.

The girl hid, and the driver took off. He reportedly drove a navy older four-door car with scratches on the driver's side door.

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to call Detective Gary Carruesco at (661) 326-3544.
