Video captures screams of attempted Stockton kidnapping

Stockton police are looking for help to catch a man they said tried to kidnap a girl on Wednesday.

Officer Joseph Silva said the 17 year old was walking to McNair High School when she was attacked near Iverness Way and Fox Creek Drive.

He said the man tried to pull the girl into his car.

Silva said the victim was able to fight off the attacker and that she did everything right when put in that situation.

"She fought back, made a lot of noise, she was able to escape she ran home and called the police," said Silva.

You can hear the screams from the attack captured on a home's surveillance camera along Lansdowne Drive.

"He was driving here, so we saw the car go here and we could hear the voice struggling, very clear," said Tammy La.

Her son's surveillance camera captured that video. It also shows the suspect's car getting away.

Supreme Court judge visits Stockton

The Advancing Women's Leadership Forum in Stockton featured  U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor as the keynote speaker. The forum in Stockton is designed to highlight female leaders and inspire leaders of tomorrow. Other speakers included Pacific Alumna Connie Rishwain, president of UGG, and 2014 bronze Paralympic medalist Amy Purdy.

The first forum was held in 2013 with U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice as keynote speaker.

Stockton mayor to get electronics back from investigators

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) - The mayor of a Northern California city whose two laptops and cellphone were seized by federal investigators says the Department of Homeland Security has agreed to return the electronics, his attorney said Wednesday.

Homeland Security officials seized the laptops and cellphone last month from Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva at San Francisco International Airport  after he got off a flight from China. Silva said he was given no explanation for the search and seizure.

Silva said he was returning from a weeklong trip with other San Francisco Bay Area mayors sponsored by China Silicon Valley, a nonprofit organization that promotes investment between China and Silicon Valley.

Mark Reichel, Silva's attorney, said Homeland Security agreed to return the items in a timely manner. He said he doesn't know why his client is being investigated by the federal government.

Notice advises Stockton residents on flood insurance

STOCKTON, CA - The city of Stockton was advising residents in 'flood prone' areas on how to determine flood dangers and buy flood insurance.

However, a notice sent out a few weeks ago didn't make it terribly easy for residents to get the information and answers they needed. A city phone number that's included as a source for help was answered by someone in another department. For flood maps, the city website took users to a county website, which offered a federal map that's difficult to navigate.

"I think it could be improved. It could provide a better explanation as to what those (map) designations mean," said Mark Martin of the Community Development Department.

Another problem with the website: it won't process information if the user included street designations like avenue, court, or drive. It only functioned with just the number and street name.

Stockton semi-pro football player shot, killed near sports bar

A semi-pro football player is killed outside of a Stockton sports bar. According to friends, Cedric Purify, 26, was shot after trying to intervene with a fighting couple near Fats Bar and Grill on N. Pershing Avenue.  

"It seems unreal," said Dewayne Smart. Smart played with Purify on the Central Valley Hurricanes Football team.  He says he was with Purify Sunday morning at Fats, but the two were separated before the shooting.  "I saw him laying on the ground," he said.  "I mean just yesterday, we were out here having football practice and talking about life goals and things like that," Smart explained. 

Instead of playing ball at Michael Faklis Park, the Hurricanes gathered to pay tribute to their brother.
