Dad Stops Man From Abducting 5-Year-Old Daughter in Bakersfield

On October 24, 2020, at 11:45 p.m., the Kern County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a vehicle accident at the corner of Airport Dr and Norris Rd. The reporting party said a male subject was attempting to take a child in one of the vehicles. Deputies arrived and found two males on the ground, with one male holding the other male down. Deputies detained the parties and determined that Quincy Dean (34 y/o) was driving his vehicle and following another vehicle in front of him. Dean crashed into the other vehicle at the intersection of Airport and Norris Rd, causing the other vehicle to pull over. When they pulled over, Dean exited his vehicle, ran up to the other vehicle and grabbed a 5-year-old female juvenile and attempted to pull her out of the back seat. The juvenile’s father pulled Dean away and held him on the ground until deputies arrived. Dean was unknown to the victim and her family. Dean was arrested for kidnapping and vandalism and booked into the Central Receiving Facility. The family in the vehicle he struck were uninjured.
