    Attempted Kidnapping Reported at SDSU

    San Diego State University students are on high alert after another attempted kidnapping. Police say the victim was walking home when she was attacked by three men.

    A San Diego State University student says three men tried to kidnap her on campus.

    The alleged attempted kidnapping happened in the 6300 block of Alvarado Road around 10 p.m. Dec. 12, in the midst of finals week.

    According to campus police, the woman told officers she was walking home when three men approached her. She said two men grabbed her arms and the third pushed her toward an SUV. Somehow, she managed to run away.

    “It just makes me kind of worried about when people go home late, especially during finals when they’re studying hard in the library, when they come at 3 a.m. or so,” SDSU student Austin Chang said.

    “It’s scary. It’s very frightening,” said Simone Taylor, who gets off work at 2 in the morning and has to walk to the parking garage.

    Police do not have good descriptions of the SUV or the suspects, except they were each about 6-feet tall.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact campus police 619-594-1991 or police@mail.sdsu.edu or call Crime Stoppers at 619-235-8477 to remain anonymous.

    Police are also reminding students that free safety escorts are available from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. every night by calling 619-594-6659.
