PASADENA Police have released a composite sketch of a man who tried to kidnap a woman from a Pasadena street before being scared away by a good Samaritan last weekend, authorities said.
The attempted abduction took place just after 8 p.m. along Maple Street, just west of Fair Oaks Avenue, Pasadena police officials said.
The woman, who was in her late-teens, suffered minor injuries to her elbows and knees from being dragged by the would-be kidnapper, but was not seriously hurt, Pasadena police Lt. William Grisafe said at the time.
She was walking down the street when she noticed a man standing on the sidewalk ne to the opened passenger-side door of a white pickup truck, Pasadena police said in a written statement.
“Once the victim walked past the suspect, the suspect pulled her by the hair causing her to turn and fall to the ground,” according to the statement. “The suspect managed to drag the victim a short distance despite her physical efforts to resist.”
A passing motorist noticed the struggle and came to a stop, officials said.
“This action by the witness caught the attention of the suspect, who then released the victim,” the statement said.
The attacker got into the driver-side of the pickup truck and was last seen driving West on Maple Street, then entering the 134 Freeway.
Officers searched the area for the suspect, as well as witnesses, officials said. He remained at-large Friday.
Police described him as a Latino man in his 20s, with a light complexion, of thin build, clean-shaven, with light brown hair.
He drove a white, late-1990s- or early-2000s-model pickup truck, possibly a Dodge Ram with an extended cab. It was missing its front bumper.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Pasadena police at 626-744-4241. Tips may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.

LA VERNE Police arrested five suspects they say kidnapped, robbed and pistol-whipped another man at Heritage Park in La Verne early Friday.
The crime took place about 12:40 a.m. at the park, 5001 Via De Mansion, La Verne police officials said in a written statement.
A 19-year-old man was approached by a group of five people in a car who tried to rob him, but he initially managed to flee, Lt. Tom Frayeh said.
But the group caught up with the young man, pistol-whipped him and forced him into their car, the lieutenant said. They then drove the victim back to the park and stole several chains the man was wearing before releasing him.
Police were first summoned to the scene by a neighborhood resident who reported an unknown person was knocking on the front window of a home, according to the police statement.
They soon learned the person knocking on windows was the robbery victim, seeking help.
Officers found one of the suspects on foot in the area and took him into custody, officials said. The other four were found sitting in a Toyota Prius parked near Heritage Park.
Tyler Strickland, 19, of La Verne; Darius Kennedy, 19, of Azusa, Julius Sims, 41, of La Verne; Jazmyn Tyus, 22, of Twentynine Palms; and a 17-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of robbery and kidnapping, Frayeh said.
According to Los Angeles County booking records, the four adult suspects were being held in lieu of $100,000 bail each pending their initial court appearances.

INDUSTRY Deputies seized more than 16,000 marijuana plants, valued at more than $50 million, and arrested eight men while raiding two warehouses in Industry on Thursday morning, authorities said.
The bust took place about 9:30 a.m. at two separate warehouses in the 1100 block of Fullerton Road, just north of the 60 Freeway, Deputy Trina Schrader of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Information Bureau said in a written statement.
Deputies began an investigation about two months ago based on a tip of possible illegal activity going on inside the warehouses, Schrader said.
Investigators from the sheriff’ Special Assignment Team obtained a two-location search warrant for the two warehouses. They showed up to serve the warrants Thursday morning.
“A sophisticated indoor marijuana grow operation was discovered at both locations,” Schrader said.
“There were over 16,000 marijuana plants seized,” she said. “The street value of the marijuana seized is over $50 million.”
Eight men were arrested during the raids on suspicion of cultivating marijuana, officials said.
They were described as residents of San Gabriel and Rowland Heights between 35 and 50 years old, according to Schrader. Detectives withheld their identities Thursday as they continued following investigative leads.
No money or weapons were seized during the raid, Schrader added.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the sheriff’s Industry Station at 626-330-3322. Tups may also be submitted anonymously to L.A. Regional Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
The raid was the second high-value marijuana bust reported in the central San Gabriel Valley since Tuesday.
El Monte police investigators, originally seeking a stolen Lexus, discovered a concentrated marijuana, or “honey oil” lab on Tuesday in the 14700 block of Horticultural Drive in neighboring Hacienda Heights. Investigators seized $1.8 million worth of marijuana and concentrated marijuana products and arrested five men.
The two busts occurred about 7 miles away from one another. Sheriff’s officials released no information regarding whether the two investigations may be related.
