A man tried to kidnap Abiah Folger, an heiress to the Folger Coffee Co. fortune, as the 12-year-old stepped from a school bus near her San Francisco home, authorities said. San Francisco police officer Greg Ovanessian said as the girl began to cross the street she noticed a black-haired, pot-bellied man she described as "scary." Seconds later the man rushed forward and tried to grab her. The kidnaper was frightened away when the child began screaming, Ovanessian said.
