A 13-year-old girl is safe at home after being abducted from her yard Friday night in Kanosh, deputies said. Two men with knives and handguns put her into a car about 9:15 p.m., said sheriff's spokeswoman Lindsay Mitchell. The girl escaped and returned home later that night.
Investigators are not releasing details as to where she was taken, Mitchell said.
On Sunday, a 12-year-old Fillmore boy was attacked. Initial reports indicated three men tried to pull him into a car, but officers later said no one tried to take the boy in a car. Instead, the suspects apparently assaulted the boy, possibly as a Halloween prank, Mitchell said. She would not discuss details of the assault.
Because of the two attacks, police are focusing patrols Monday on schools in Fillmore and Delta, Mitchell said.
One of the men in Sunday's attack was described as 5 feet 11 inches, 160-170 pounds and stocky. He was wearing dark jeans and a grey, long-sleeve shirt. He and the two other men were wearing homemade ski masks. They were in a well-maintained newer-model dark-maroon two-door passenger car with tinted back windows and a spoiler.
The men in Friday's attack were both white, deputies wrote. One had a full, dark beard and ponytail. He was wearing an orange baseball cap, black pants and a black shirt. The second man was much taller than the first and had multiple earrings in his right ear. He was wearing a black knit cap, a blue bandana, a black jacket and black pants. Both smelled of tobacco, deputies wrote. They were in a dark-colored four-door passenger car.
