BATON ROUGE - Police asked for the public's help Monday identifying a car involved in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a young girl in Baton Rouge.
A BRPD spokesperson said on Dec. 13 a 7-year-old girl was playing at Gus Young Park when a man lured her over and grabbed her, forcing her into his vehicle.
