Sheriff's deputies are looking for a Hispanic man in his late 30s in connection with an attempted kidnapping in Canyon Country this morning.

Shortly before 7 a.m., a man approached a boy in the area of Camp Plenty Road north of Soledad Canyon Road, Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Lt. Steve Low said in a statement.

"The suspect reached toward the victim and the victim ran," Low said in a media release. "The suspect chased the victim a short distance and left in an unknown direction."

The suspect was seen in a compact vehicle just before the incident, he said.

The boy ran to Sierra Vista Junior High School where he notified school staff about the incident, the release states.

The investigation is ongoing.
