    Campbell police have arrested Roberto Felipe-Velasco, a 25 year old transient, in connection with the attempted child abduction that occurred on Saturday.

    Officers made the arrest about 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday, after an officer found a 1998 silver Honda Accord 4-door in the parking lot of Extra Space Storage, 241 W. Sunnyoaks Avenue. The Honda matched the description of the suspect vehicle and investigators found Velasco seated in the driver’s seat, police said in a statement.

    Police say that Velasco "closely resembled" the suspect description given by the girl, who is between 10 and 12 years old. Investigators wrote a search warrant for Velasco’s storage unit and seized numerous items of evidence including clothing that was consistent with what was worn the day of the attempted kidnapping, police said.

    Mr. Velasco has been booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail for kidnapping, false imprisonment, and child endangerment. He is currently being held without bail.
