By CCT STAFF

San Luis Obispo police arrested a 28-year-old resident on Monday for allegedly attempting to kidnap an 8-year-old girl near Meadow Park.

Shortly before 4 p.m., while the girl was walking home from the park, David Castellon firmly grabbed the child’s arm, according to police. The girl was able to escape the man’s grip and run home to her parents.

After the child provided a description of the suspect, officers spotted Castellon in the area.

When officers attempted to contact Castellon, he ran. After a short foot
pursuit, officers apprehended the suspect.

During an interview with the suspect, investigators obtained statements linking Castellon to the alleged crime. Officers booked the alleged kidnapper into the San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $50,000.

How the Hell do you get bail for that!?!?

“If a man is caught kidnapping any of his countrymen of the sons of Israel, and he deals with him violently or sells him, then that thief shall die; so you shall purge the evil from among you.” (Deuteronomy 24:7)


Even though David Castellon allegedly acted violently with this poor little girl by grabbing her arm, at least he didn’t try and sell her. Therefore, is this the cause of his release and escaping death?


When is this Christian nation going to actually follow our Jesus’ direct words within the scriptures? “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29)

Ted Slanders, how do you know what his intentions were? Maybe he was planning on selling her. Sex trafficking is HUGE right now. Luckily she escaped and won’t find out.


If I ever caught someone trying to kidnap my child, both of his eyes would be sideways, not just one!

It’s sad how people here will say racist things in any context, even a kidnapping gone wrong and the girl is safe and the man in jail. Is he from central or south america, a citizen here? Idk, I do know there are several sick racists here who should be in jail with this man.

oldtimer,


If one is a TRUE Christian like myself, we are explicitly shown in the Bible in how our Yahweh/Jesus/Ghost God was the number one racist, therefore the Christian has an example of being racist if need be.


If you are against racism, then you are obviously not a TRUE Christian. :(

His right eye is already trying to get back to Mexico

Am I paranoid for thinking an 8 year old child should not be in that park by her self.

I just saw on the Sheriffs website that he’s no longer in custody. On the way to Mexico?


oldtimer

Oh, do you know if he’s from central or south america? Or Just racist? Were you raised in a racist house hold?

$50,000 bail? Surely its a typo…. are you sure it isn’t $500,000?

I’m SO glad that little girl reacted quickly and ran off. Shame on this horrible speck of sludge for attempting to harm her.
