Police are investigating a possible attempted kidnapping outside a supermarket in northwest Bakersfield. The reported encounter has been investigated to see if it may be linked to similar recent incidents that were posted on Facebook. BPD says a man yelled “get her” to someone in his car Sunday, and then followed a teenage girl before driving off. No one has been abducted or arrested and the incident outside Albertson’s on Coffee Road at Olive Drive does not appear to be linked to what may have happened at Northwest Promenade. Investigators say people should report any suspicious activities to police rather than just post incidents to social media.
