According to Sgt. Steve Martos, a grandmother was watching her 1- and 3-year-old grandchildren. They were in the front yard playing when the grandmother was on the phone.

Then the woman heard a commotion in the front yard, and saw an unknown male with the 3-year-old. She confronted the male, who fled on foot. The woman then called 911.

Officers were in the area and were able to take the man into custody. He was detained and is currently being interviewed.
