San Diego Police Department (SDPD) are investigating an attempted kidnapping in San Ysidro Friday night.

The incident happened around 5:14 p.m. on Mt. Carmel Drive and Padre Tullio Drive just east of the Interstate 805. 

A 15-year old girl was walking westbound on Mt. Carmel Drive when she noticed a red Honda sedan driving next to her, SDPD said.

The victim began to walk faster and the suspect also sped up his car.
