It May Be a Domestic Dispute

I called the South Pasadena Review and spoke with an employee named Bill who said that at this time the police department has the feeling that it is a domestic dispute rather than a kidnapping. He says the police are still investigating it.

No matter what the final story turns out to be, things like this just don't happen in South Pasadena. At least not since I've lived here the past three years. Even before moving here, when I lived in Alhambra and Glendale, you never heard anything bad that happened in SoPas.

I hate to point this out, but if you search the Megan's Law site for our zip code, South Pas certainly does have its share of sex offenders - one pretty close to the Mission/Meridian intersection.

Ever since I found that out, I've kind of dropped the "it doesn't happen here" mentality I used to have. I'd almost rather not know!

FYI, I pulled this off of LexisNexis, dated March 29:

"A woman was kidnapped on a South Pasadena street today by two men, police said. Two witnesses in a passing vehicle called 911 after seeing a woman being forced into an old pickup truck about 5:40 p.m. in the 200 block of Fair Oaks Avenue, near the Pasadena city limit, South Pasadena police Sgt. Mark Miller said. The woman is in her 30s, with long brown hair in a ponytail. She was wearing a pink top and jeans, Miller said. As she walked south on the sidewalk, a pickup truck pulled to the curb behind her, Miller said. The pickup was described as a "dingy" black or blue Ford or Chevrolet full-sized pickup from the 1970s with metal racks extending above each side of the bed, he said. Two men got out of the truck, approached her from behind, and grabbed her by the hair and arms and forced her into the pickup, Miller said. They drove away north into Pasadena. One suspect was described as in his 30s, 5 feet 10 inches tall, of medium build with brown hair and a mustache. He was wearing a white T-shirt and white painter's pants. There was no specific description of the second suspect. Anyone with information was asked to call detectives at (626) 403-7280."

Thanks, Marielle. Seems like studying library science has its perks. :) I'm going to post some of these details.
