Man Allegedly Steals Book From 14-Year-Old & Pulls Her Toward Car

Rudolph John Sun, 22, was arrested Tuesday.

A 22-year-old Elk Grove resident was arrested Tuesday after police say he stole a school book from a 14-year-old and pulled her toward his vehicle.

Rudolph John Sun approached a 14-year-old girl in a Laguna West parking lot around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, and began asking her questions, according to an Elk Grove Police Department crime log.

He then threw water on the victim and stole a school book from her, the crime log states. 

"[Sun] returned the book back to [the victim] then forcefully took the book back from [her]," the department states.

He then grabbed her clothing and "pulled [her] toward his vehicle," according to the crime log. She pulled away and ran from the parking lot, according to police. Sun fled but was later arrested at a residence on charges of robbery and attempted kidnapping, the police log states.

He was released from the Sacramento County Main Jail Wednesday, county records show.

I'd like more details about why he was released. Scary!

Hillary, if I had to guess I would say he was probably released on bail -- but I'll check.
