2 Suspects ID’d in Alleged Kidnapping of 16-Year-Old Girl, Chase Through L.A. and Orange Counties
The alleged kidnapping of a 16-year-old girl sparked a chase that ran through Los Angeles and Orange counties for more than an hour Thursday night before two suspects were booked and identified Friday morning The chase began around 11:30 p.m. in Santa Clarita before moving about 70 miles south and ending in Orange County shortly before 1 a.m. No injuries were reported.
The 16-year-old victim's boyfriend was trying to pick her up from Mellville Courson Park in Palmdale when two men inside a car with her refused to let her go, authorities said.
The suspects had "made statements indicating she would not be exiting their vehicle," according to a Sheriff's Department news release issued Friday. They allegedly locked the car's doors and drove off — with the victim's boyfriend following them before he eventually lost sight of the vehicle.
He managed to flag down a patrol vehicle in the area and the incident was reported to authorities at 11 p.m., officials said. As he spoke with deputies, the victim was allegedly texting him saying she was scared and pleading for help.
THIS IS FRUSTRATING AND REALLY BOTHERS ME BUT THE PATTERN IS PREDICTABLE.. WE NEED TO SAVE OUR CULTURE..
OUR PEOPLE USED TO STUDY THE STARS AND EVEN THEN UNDERSTOOD THAT WE WERE A PART OF SOMETHING GRAND AND AMAZING. WE CAN'T EVEN PICK OUR HEADS UP NOW TO AVOID A MOVING VEHICLE.
TO CONTROL A TREE YOU NEED TO CONTROL THE ROOTS.. LET'S GET BACK TO WHERE WE STARTED FROM AND GIVE OUR FUTURE SEEDS A REASON TO HEAD BACK TOWARDS THE SKY.
🍇Located in Napa valley California, Yountville is in the heart of the wine country, and it is one of the most charming towns I have ever visited. This mile and a half stretch has less than 3,000 inhabitants, but it is densely packed with culinary marvels. The legendary chef Thomas Keller has Ad Hoc Addendum (@adhoc_addendum )along with two Michelin star restaurants here at Yountville; The French Laundry (@_tfl_ ) and The Bouchon Bistro (@bouchon_bistro). I highly recommend making your reservation at least a few months in advance to The French Laundry, hence it is one of the most sought after spots in the entire country. The Bouchon Bistro is a must go for brunch, make sure you try their chicken and waffles, and you will remember this experience forever. For pizza lovers Reddwood (@redd.wood ) is a no brainer. Their crust is to die for, and their warm olives are out of this world. And finally one of my all time favorites, this cozy, family run gem called Bistro Jeanty (@bistro.jeanty) by chef Philippe Jeanty. This is a slice of everyday life from France. Close your eyes and pick anything from the menu, surely you will have a multi sensory experience.
The weather is so pleasant especially this time of the year that you must allow ample time for peaceful walks or bike rides around the neighborhood amongst mustard flowers and organic gardens.
Last but not least, Yountville is also a home to many charming hotels but one in particular; Hotel Yountville (@hotelyountville). I just want to extend my deepest gratitudes to the entire team for making our stay incredibly memorable🙏🏼. The warming fireplace and the bottle of wine to welcome us to our room were amazing gestures, not to mention the turndown service with delicious chocolates every night.
In the end, we take all these memories back home with us with a smile, while leaving a part of our hearts in this most romantic town. Promise to be back soon,
San Francisco is a wonderful place. It is full of great restaurants, vibrant neighborhoods, beautiful parks, diversity and love. I may have only lived there for about 9 months but it definitely left a mark on me!
This was taken in Dolores Park near where I used to live just next to the Castro District. As a proud gay man myself, I am always profoundly in awe of the work and resilience it took for me to experience the openness I currently do by people that lived and still live in this neighborhood today.
The park is a great place to relax, have a picnic, work out a bit, find a great restaurant that surrounds it and just take a moment to yourself or with your friends. Life is hectic! Finding a park like this is so good for your own mental health. It certainly was for me.
This park has quite a history though. Before settlement by the Spanish, this area was inhabited by the Yelamu tribe for 4000-6000 years (and the area of San Francisco surrounding the park). Spanish missionaries founded the park in 1776 at the same time that the United States of America was declaring independence. California wouldn’t become a part of the United States for almost 100 years.
Because of its large Latino population, in 1966, a replica of the “Mexican Liberty Bell”, was installed in the park and was presented by Mexican president Gustavo Díaz Ordaz. It was placed next to a statue of Miguel Hidalgo, who is referred to as the father of Mexican independence. The original bell which is located in Mexico City was rung in 1810 by Hidalgo in the city of Dolores Hidalgo which is where the park gets its name.
