SAN JACINTO (CBSLA) — A San Jacinto man who was released on bail after being arrested for allegedly trying to kidnap a teen girl in San Jacinto is back in police custody after a second alleged kidnapping attempt in the same area.
At about 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies were called to the area of Esplanade and San Jacinto avenues after receiving a call that a suspect was trying to lure a 15-year-old girl into his vehicle. According to the sheriff’s department, witnesses reported seeing the suspect driving a black, four-door Nissan sedan with an Arizona license plate number CEJ2788 at the scene.
Deputies located and arrested 40-year-old Billie Fenter on charges of annoying or molesting a child. However, he bailed out of jail on Monday.
On Tuesday evening, another report of an attempted kidnapping was filed at the same intersection. Witnesses told police the suspect was a black male adult between 30-40 years old driving a black Nissan sedan with Arizona plates.
Due to the suspect’s vehicle and physical description matching the description, deputies identified Fenter as the suspect in the second kidnapping attempt. The victim positively identified Fenter as the same suspect. Deputies conducted a search for Fenter, but were unable to locate him.
Sheriff’s deputies announced Fenter was back in custody Wednesday morning.
