TEEN ESCAPES INJURY FROM THREE KIDNAPPERS.

Byline: Angie Valencia Staff Writer

SIMI VALLEY - Three men abducted a 17-year-old Royal High School girl as she walked home from school Monday, and one of them attempted to sexually assault her, police said Tuesday.

The girl told police she was walking near Royal and Crosby avenues about 3:40 p.m. when two suspects in ski masks grabbed her from behind, blindfolded her and forced her into a green sedan with a third suspect.

The vehicle stopped a short time later, and the masked suspects got out and left the teen with the driver, police said. The driver tried to assault her, but she struggled and was able to escape with only a bruised wrist.

The driver was described as Latino, 26-30, with brown hair, brown eyes and a birthmark under his chin, officials said.

Police would not say how the blindfolded girl was able to provide them with a description.

Anyone with information on Monday's case is asked to contact Simi Valley police at (805) 583-6950.

The abduction follows a March incident in which a 13-year-old girl was sexually assaulted in an alley behind a shopping center in the 600 block of Los Angeles Avenue.

And in January, a 27-year-old woman reported she was sexually assaulted in her home in the 2000 block of Cochran Street by a man posing as a door-to-door salesman.
