SAN DIEGO – Officers investigating a report of a possible kidnapping at Hoyt Park in Scripps Ranch determined no crime occurred.

After someone told police he saw a man chasing after a girl and pull her into his vehicle in the 10100 block of Scripps Ranch Boulevard, police say a 19-year-old man merely picked up his sister and took her home.

The unfounded report came two days after two children reported that a man tried to grab them while walking home from Jerabek Elementary School in Scripps Ranch.
