WESLACO – Police need help identifying the suspects of an attempted kidnapping of a 17-year-old girl.

The attempted kidnapping happened on Adelita Street in Weslaco;

A 17-year-old high school student was making her nightly jog when she was forced to run for her life.

“There was a car behind me; driving behind me while I was running. I had seen the car, when I turned around it turned off the headlights and it was just dark,” she says.

She says the man in the passenger seat then got out of his vehicle and started chasing after her.

She explains she ran until she managed to call her father.

“I was running; I was panting, trying to tell him there was someone behind me,” she says.

The black Chevy Impala sped away.

CHANNEL 5 NEWS spoke to resident, Rene Castillo, who has lived in the area for over 15 years.
