KUSA- Denver police arrested a man they believe tried to kidnap a 13-year-old child.

Oscar Escobedo-Vasquez was arrested Thursday near Bruce Randolph Avenue and Steele Street for criminal attempted kidnapping.

On Tuesday, a man attempted to kidnap the teen while she was walking home from school in the 3300 block of North York Street. The child ran away and called for help.

Police say Escobedo-Vasquez's vehicle matches the description of one put out in a crime bulletin. Investigators are not releasing his photo at this time because the investigation is ongoing and additional witnesses are being contacted.
