Attempted kidnapping and burglary charge for Los Gatos man
A Los Gatos man was arrested by the Placer County Sheriff”s Department Wednesday morning at a residence on Mount Vernon Road in Auburn after he attacked the two residents there.
Udi Fishman, 59, is being held without bail at the Placer County Jail on charges of attempted kidnapping and burglary.
At 9:16 a.m. Wednesday, the Sheriff”s Department responded to the home for a reported assault. The suspect, Fishman, who was known to the homeowners, came to the house for unknown reasons. He forced his way into the home and pepper-sprayed two victims, a male and a female. A struggle then ensued between Fishman and the victims.
Deputies arrived and arrested Fishman. The female victim had fled the scene and drove herself to Placer County’s Dewitt Center, where she sought help from employees at the Placer County Community Development Resource Agency building.
Both victims were treated for exposure to pepper spray and suffered no other injuries.
Evidence found during the investigation suggests Fishman may have intended to kidnap one or both of the victims, but was unable to carry out his plan. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be filed.
