Auburn, Calif., mother Cheyanne Martinez is that her little closer after an attempted kidnapping on Saturday.

“Just even that they are far enough to where I can’t get to them fast enough, makes me nervous,” she said.

It happened at the same park where Martinez and her children spent the day.

A grandfather and his two grandchildren were in the area, a duck pond in Ashford Park, as police say Lindsay Frasher came to them.

“Mrs. Frasher approached one of the children called her a different name and tried to take her,” said Sergeant Gary Hopping with the Auburn Police Department.

Frasher reportedly wrapped her arms around the 3-year-old body, according to the researchers, but the victim’s grandfather fought back.

“It was a tug of war over the little girl,” said Hopping.

The grandfathers and others, who saw what happened kept Frasher on the park to the Auburn Police Department. The police said the 28-year-old was not known to the family. They do not believe that they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

The researchers could not say if Frasher is suffering from a mental illness.

Frasher is behind bars at the Placer County Jail. She is charged with the kidnapping.

FOX40 put in a request to the Placer County Jail to interview Frasher. We were told it is not available for interviews until they are housed in the correct location.
