Police Arrest Man, 42, For Trying To Abduct Boy, 9

PALM DESERT (CBS)  — Police arrested a 42-year-old Palm Desert man Wednesday that they said attempted to kidnap a 9-year-old boy.

Authorities said police got a call at 2:57 p.m., about 15 minutes after a man supposedly grabbed an arm of one of three boys walking together near Magnesia Falls Drive and Portola Avenue.

At 3:06 p.m., deputies stopped a pedestrian who matched a description provided by the boys, sheriff’s spokeswoman Herlinda Valenzuela reported.

She said the 9-year-old, who was not hurt, and the two other boys all identified the man as the suspect.

Valenzuela said deputies took Brian Kelly into custody without incident.

    Sad thing the DA will reject the case and I am sure the man will be released from prison on a unrelated case. The system is amazing.
