Man on probation facing attempted kidnap charge
February 15, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

A 26-year-old man on probation for making annoying phone calls is now charged with attempted kidnapping after allegedly grabbing a woman walking in downtown San Mateo Thursday afternoon and dragging her roughly three feet.

The woman, also 26 years old, told police she was walking around noon when a man she later identified as Noah Wayne Bennett grabbed her arm and demanded she come with him. She replied no and he dragged her before she could pull away and run to her house to call police, District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.

Bennett told San Mateo police he had taken the train to the city and was out window shopping near Third Avenue at the time of the alleged incident.

On Friday, Bennett pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted kidnapping and asked for a court-appointed attorney. Bail was set at $175,000 and he remains in custody.

At the time of his arrest, Bennett was on probation. He also has a criminal strike on his record for a 2010 Redwood City robbery conviction.
