Clad in a trench coat and a black fedora, a man insinuated Thursday he was going to kidnap a 15-year-old Pacific Grove High School student, police said.
Just before 3 p.m., an unidentified man approached a teenage boy on Sunset Avenue in front of the Pacific Grove High School stadium, according to a Pacific Grove Police Department release. The student told officers the man asked, “If you had a cell phone, would you be able to call someone if I kidnapped you?”
Bad guy being too obvious?
An “evil” character, a Film Noir character, or otherwise out-of-the-ordinary character, can always be identified (by the observant audience anyway) by the fact that he wears a concealing trenchcoat, fedora and occasionally dark glasses that are in no way seen as suspicious by any passers-by.
