SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) — A Santa Ana man on Friday faced false imprisonment and other charges for allegedly trying to kidnap a 10-year-old boy.

KNX 1070′s Mike Landa reports police responded to a call shortly before 7:30 p.m. on Thursday from Delhi Park at 505 E. Central stating that a soccer coach was unsuccessfully attempting to detain 55-year-old suspect Victor Joseph Espinoza.

When officers arrived, the 425-pound Espinoza had escaped. He was located by helicopter shortly afterward hiding in a backyard on the 500 block of E. Central.

Do you think they have a prison jumpsuit large enough for him or are they just going to have to wrap him in a blaze orange tarp and call it good?

That's one way to roll a burrito.

That goatee makes a world of difference (snort)

NYC gangster Vincent ‘The Chin’ Gigante just dropped his claim to that nickname.

“In talking to the victim, he stated that he stayed in the yard where he saw him go because he was unable to get over the fence,” Bertagna said.

No way! Why didn't he just freeze in position and hope no one noticed him.

“How on earth did he manage to run away from a soccer coach?”

Once something that large gets up to speed it must be hard to stop and dangerous to try. Probably ran over the soccer coach. But on the flip side, he was obviously too large to hide. Probably has a very unique radar cross-section.

Notice how he's not actually wearing that shirt. It looks like they just shoved it under his chin and it stayed.

It's stuck in his gravity well.
