Police Hunting for Clues in Woman's Abduction

July 06, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

Police are still seeking clues in the brief kidnapping of a woman from her east Ventura home.

The woman, whose name was withheld by police, told authorities that a man entered her Twin River Circle condominium as she slept at about 1 a.m. on June 27, took her wallet and forced her to leave with him in her vehicle. Later that morning she flagged down a California Highway Patrol officer and reported that she had been sexually assaulted in her car.

The suspect was described as African American, 5 foot 8, weighing 175 pounds and between 28 and 35 years old. He was wearing a black corduroy jacket, a white T-shirt, baggy blue jeans and white tennis shoes. His front teeth were chipped and uneven, officials said.

Anyone with information should call Ventura Police Dets. Pat Stevens or Tom Mendes at 339-4479.
