• Arcadia County Park Kidnapper Arrested


    ARCADIA (CNS) – A transient was in custody today on suspicion of grabbing a 6-year-old girl at Arcadia County Park and trying to drag her away from family and friends, a sheriff’s deputy said.

    The kidnapping attempt occurred at Arcadia County Park at 405 S. Santa Anita Ave. at 3:35 p.m. Sunday, said Deputy Johnie K. Jones of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Parks Bureau.

    “The girl was playing with her friends in the picnic area by the softball fields when Jason Macklin Dell, 33 years of age, grabbed her by the hand and began dragging her out of the park away from her friends and family,” Jones said. “The girl screamed and fought to get away from the man and was able to free herself after being pulled approximately 100 feet.”

    The girl ran to her mother and reported what had happened, Jones said.

    “The mother called 911 and then confronted Mr. Dell, who was detained quickly by Arcadia Police Department personnel. The girl was physically unharmed,” Jones said.

    Dell, a transient, was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and annoying a child and booked into the sheriff’s Temple Station and being held in lieu of $400,000 bail, Jones said.

    Parks Bureau detectives were on the scene and handling the investigation, he said.
