SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — A 29-year-old Orange County man is accused of trying to abduct a teenage girl out of an Aliso Viejo bookstore, authorities said Monday.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports Saif Mohamed Moussa was arrested after the incident in a Barnes & Noble store at 26751 Aliso Creek Road around 2 p.m. Saturday.

A 17-year-old girl was shopping in the bookstore when Moussa wrapped her up in a bear hug and started walking her to the front door, according to Orange County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino.

“He said he intended to marry her,” Amormino said.

Before Moussa was able to exit the store with the victim, the girl broke free and located her father – an off-duty Orange County Sheriff’s deputy – at another location inside the store, said Amormino.

The deputy restrained the suspect until other deputies arrived and took Moussa into custody, Amormino said.

Moussa was booked on kidnapping and child annoyance charges, according to Amormino.
