A man who allegedly wrapped a 17-year-old Barnes & Noble shopper in a bear hug and began carrying her out the front door of the Aliso Viejo bookstore saying he wanted to marry her was arrested Saturday.

Saif Mohamed Moussa, 29, was later held in lieu of $100,000 bail on kidnapping and child annoyance charges.

This happened around 2 p.m. Saturday at the store at 26751 Aliso Creek Road. Once the stranger reached the front door, the girl managed to break free and find her father: an off-duty Orange County sheriff's deputy.

Daddy managed to restrain the fellow until on-duty deputies arrived, arrested the man and later identified him as Moussa.

City News Service reports court documents show a chap by the same name pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of lewd conduct in a public place on April 2 and was sentenced to 52 days in jail and put on probation for three years.

This guy has been going regularly to this Barnes & Noble for years now, totally
harmless but over-friendly. he is Bi-polar, shakes hands and hugs everybody, I
guess part of the symptoms, and reads a lot too. I think this incident went out
of proportion. How could someone drag a 17 years old girl 25 feet @ 2pm on
Sat at a crowded B&N without her screaming for help nor any one noticing till
she talks to her father, mind you this guy doesn't even have a car, he uses the
public bus all the time at a nearby bus-stop.  does this look like abduction in
any way ? I'm sure other frequent customers of that store can agree with me.

Hmmm, Egyptian so his religion is Islam? I wonder what his fellow men would say about this kind of conduct from their own... tsk...

Actually he's Egyptian. There are white Arabs, just like there are white Latinos...

You want to get married so you carry the 17 year old daughter of a sheriff out of a bookstore? Sounds like a pretty good plan to me.

so where is this freak from..? judging his name and picture - it's hard to say. Attempted kidnapping only gets you 52 days - I guess he's already out to have another go. Unreal. The next girl could be raped and murdered.

The bookstore is about a half mile from the Sheriff's Department HQ in Aliso Viejo. The girl is the daughter of a Sheriff's deputy. Sometimes the gene pool needs a bit......a LOT......of chlorine.

The fact that she was a Sheriff's Deputy's daughter was a nice touch...

@Mitchell_Young The obsession you have with your whites is laughable—I'm sure you've gone nuts trying to justify the Tzaernaevs...
