VISTA–Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man who attempted to remove a two-year-old child from a vehicle Saturday at the Costco parking lot in Vista.
Shortly before 3 p.m., a woman, her fiancée and their two small children were backing out of a parking stall in the parking lot of the Costco store, located at 1700 block of Hacienda Drive in Vista.
The suspect, Adam Glavinic, 37 opened the rear vehicle door and attempted to remove a 2-year-old child. The parents exited the vehicle and confronted Glavinic. The incident drew a crowd and a physical confrontation occurred between the father and Glavinic. An off-duty Sheriff’s employee and other witnesses intervened, separating the two until deputies from the Vista Sheriff’s Station arrived on the scene.
Glavinic was arrested for attempted kidnapping and being under the influence of a controlled substance. He was booked into the Vista Detention Facility. The investigation is ongoing.
