CALABASAS (CBS) — Officials in Calabasas say a man tried to sexually assault an 8-year-old girl yesterday.

The attempted assault occured around 2:45 p.n. in the 23600 block of Park Capri, according to Lt. Andy Rosso of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Department.

Rosso said the suspect lured the young girl into a secluded area.

The suspect tried to commit a sexual act, says Rosso, “[but] the child was able to run away to safety.”

Rosso described the suspect as a white male, about 30 years of age, with sandy blond hair. The victim said the suspect was also about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 pounds. He was wearing tan shorts.

Officials asked anyone with information regarding the incident to call detectives at the Special Victims Bureau at (562) 946-8293 or the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s at (818) 878-1808.

    Were are all the racist that blame everything on Hispanics… You FN idiots bad people are bad people they don’t come in raise,or religion, etc….. Do not t take out your frustration of not having a job or money on the Hispanic Community. Instead of posting racist remarks look for a job

      Uhhh there are no racial comments… I’m guessing you are hispanic? Sooo what prompted you to bring up race when this story only describes the perpetrator and then moves on. The story has nothing to do with race so I’m going to surmise that you are the racist.

    Finally the Calabasas Sheriff’s have something to do, instead of pulling over law abiding citizens over.

  3. Jamie says:

    The sheriff deputies do a lot. Why do you think Calabasas has a low crime rate? Even though speeding or things like that aren’t major crimes, I love seeing a cop pull someone over for driving like a moron. lt sucks having to be on the same road with so many people that drive like maniacs ( that’s the polite thing to call them) =p
