CARLSBAD — A 13-year-old girl who was walking her dog around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 in the 5100 block of Frost Avenue in Carlsbad told police she observed a black full sized pick up following her. She reported she became nervous, and began to walk a little faster. The truck also sped up, at which time the victim began to run. The passenger in the vehicle then exited and began chasing after the victim.
The victim ran to the front yard of a residence and ran toward the front door looking for help. Once the victim left the sidewalk, the suspect ran back to the truck. The truck executed a U-turn and left the area traveling westbound on Frost Avenue.
