Attempted kidnap suspect accused of possessing child porn

A 23-year-old man arrested on suspicion of attempted kidnapping in Woodland in November is also accused of possessing child pornography.

Kyle Hall, described by police as a transient, was taken into custody Nov. 28 after a 31-year-old Woodland woman reported Nov. 25 that he tried to kidnap her in the Westgate shopping center at 367 Main St. She told police that she was walking between parked vehicles when a man seated in a pickup truck opened his door, blocking her way. She said he grabbed her by the hair and pulled her toward the truck.

The woman yelled for help and as a bystander approached, the man released her and drove off. She was not injured.

Hall was arrested three days later in another Woodland parking lot and remains in custody.

After his November arrest, obscene sexual material involving children was located on his property, and investigators determined that it belonged to Hall, according to a Woodland Police Department news release.

Police said the case is still under investigation and the identity of the children has not been determined.
