CHP nabs kidnapping suspect after Amber Alert sighting in Lassen County

Breaking News

 

 

The Susanville area California Highway Patrol have in custody two adults allegedly involved in a possible kidnapping that occurred shortly before 10 a.m. today, Friday, July 9. The traffic stop occurred at the Honey Lake Rest Stop, south of Janesville on Highway 395.    

 

The Sacramento Sheriff's Department said no children were involved in the Amber Alert issued earlier today.

 

Initial reports of what transpired earlier in the day are now blurred. We will keep you posted on further updates as we receive them. 

 

Officials have identified the suspect as 27-year-old Leon Cuahutemoc.

Shortly before 10 a.m., Cuahutemoc went to the woman's apartment and allegedly took her and the child by force.

Bystanders said the suspect allegedly fired several shots, though an area deputy sergeant said Cuahutemoc was not targeting the woman.

He then allegedly forced her into a car described as a pink Lincoln Continental. They were last seen heading westbound. It’s unclear whether the girl is Cuahutemoc's child from another relationship or the couple's child.

The 3-year-old is described as a Hispanic girl with brown hair and brown eyes, according to the alert.

The adult victim is described as a white woman, 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, Curran said. She has blonde hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing a white shirt and pink pants.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man, 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing 200 pounds, Curran said. He has brown hair and brown eyes.
