A 425-pound man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly trying to abduct a 10-year old boy on his way to football practice.
Police received a call at around 7:30 p.m. when about a man trying to kidnap a young boy in Santa Ana, California. The caller said the boy's coach was trying to detain the man, but he had escaped.
Officers eventually located Victor Joseph Espinoza, 55, hiding in the backyard of a nearby residence. The suspect was taken into custody without incident, but he had minor injuries from his contact with the coach.
Espinoza was booked on suspicion of false imprisonment, child annoying, and gang enhancements, for being a documented gang member.
