Man attempts to kidnap See Canyon teen
June 28, 2013
San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man they said tried to kidnap a 17 year-old Thursday on Pippin Lane in See Canyon.
Brett Allen Edgell, 26, of Minneapolis was driving a stolen SUV when he allegedly began ramming a car driven by the teenage victim. He then approached the teen and told her several times to get into his SUV.
The teen escaped and locked herself in her home.
Responding to a call from the victim’s father, deputies located Edgell who led them on a short pursuit that ended with Edgell attempting to ram a sheriff vehicle.
However, Edgell’s vehicle became stuck. Before being arrested, Edgell struggled with a deputy who sustained minor injuries.
Deputies booked Edgell into the San Luis Obispo County Jail. Edgell is facing charges of attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, felony auto theft, attempting to evade a peace officer in a reckless manner, and resisting arrest. He is being held without bail.
