By Anna Buss

LASD Temple Sheriff’s Station Detectives arrested a 44-year-old man this past weekend on suspicion of an attempted kidnapping earlier this year in Rosemead.

Investigators took Bin Zhang of San Gabriel into custody as he walked along Del Mar Avenue early Sunday.  Zhang was identified as the person involved in the attempted kidnapping of an 11-year old male from a public sidewalk in Rosemead on January.

Though the incident went unreported, detectives launched an investigation that led to  Zhang’s arrest Sunday. At approximately 10:00 a.m., deputies observed a male matching the identified suspect in the attempted kidnap case. The suspect was walking in the 2700 block of Del Mar Avenue.

Zhang was transported to Temple Sheriff’s Station where he was booked on Attempt Kidnapping charges, and is currently being held in lieu of $100,000.00 bail.
