Watson did not specify where the incident occurred, however, and
has not responded to calls requesting further information.
The girl was discovered in Berkeley at 5:06 a.m. when police there
responded to 911 calls reporting someone yelling for help in the area of
Ashby and Piedmont avenues in Berkeley, about two blocks from the Claremont
Hotel, Berkeley police spokeswoman Officer Jennifer Coats said.
She told investigators that she had been kidnapped in Oakland,
robbed and dropped off in Berkeley, and Berkeley police turned over the case
to Oakland police, Watson said.
