Attempted carjacking suspect nabbed in Rocklin after abandoning baby in gridlock

A Sacramento man was arrested on suspicion of attempted carjacking and child endangerment in Rocklin Monday afternoon, after leaving a baby in a stalled vehicle in traffic on Sierra College Boulevard.

Alan W. Rose, 26, was booked into Placer County Jail. He reportedly was a passenger in a sedan at Sierra College and Ridge Park Drive, when he grabbed the keys from the ignition, causing the car to stall, and exited the car.

He left behind his girlfriend, the driver of the car, and their infant inside the car, according to Rocklin Police Lt. Lon Milka. Milka said the speed limit along that stretch is 50 miles per hour.

Rose then entered lanes of traffic on foot and tried to stop two separate vehicles traveling on the road, attempting to open the vehicle doors and force the occupants out, before fleeing the scene on foot.

A perimeter was set up by police and Rose was found hiding in a field a short distance away.

No one was reported injured in the incident.

Initial witness reports said Rose had a handgun, but he was found unarmed, Milka said.

Rose was also arrested on a charge of violating a domestic violence restraining order.
