Incident bears similarities to case of missing teen Pearl Pinson

VALLEJO — A woman whose friend was reportedly being dragged off Friday by a man saved her friend by using pepper spray to deter the would-be kidnapper, authorities said.

The incident bears similarities to the suspected abduction late last month of 15-year-old Pearl Pinson, who still has not been found and whose suspected abductor was later shot and killed.

Authorities report that they received a report at approximately 8:30 p.m. Friday of a kidnapping related to domestic violence in the Home Acres area of Vallejo, during which a woman was seen being dragged from the area against her will.

The victim’s friend was nearby and used pepper spray to distract the man, which allowed the victim to escape, the Solano County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement about the incident. Neither woman was seriously injured but the victim’s child was inside the friend’s car and witnessed the incident, the Sheriff’s Office reports.

Deputies tracked down an 18-year-old man and arrested him on suspicion of kidnapping, false imprisonment, child endangerment and domestic violence, the Sheriff’s Office reports. The man’s name was not released but a teen was jailed about three hours after the incident on allegations that mirror those described by authorities.

Elijah E. Summerise, 18, was arrested Friday on the 1500 block of Magazine Street in Vallejo and was booked by sheriff’s deputies into the county jail shortly after 11:45 p.m. on suspicion of kidnapping and false imprisonment, both felonies, and domestic battery and willful cruelty to a child, both misdemeanors, according to jail booking records.

Bail was a combined $132,500.

Friday’s incident occurred near where a bleeding and screaming Pinson was seen being dragged by a man armed with a gun shortly before 7 a.m. May 25 from the pedestrian walkway over Interstate 780. Pinson was on her way to school at the time, but never arrived.

The walkway links Lewis Avenue and Taylor Avenue in the Home Acres area of Vallejo.

Fernando Castro, 19, of Vallejo, was identified as Pinson’s suspected kidnapper. Castro was shot and killed during a gunfight with authorities the afternoon of May 26 in Solvang, near Santa Barbara, but Pinson was not found. The search for her has continued.

Authorities have said that Pinson and Castro were acquaintances but that Pinson was taken against her will.

Pink Pepper Spray For WomenPinson is white, 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 130 pounds and has brown hair that’s dyed green, and green eyes. She was last seen wearing a gray sweater, black leggings and had a black and turquoise backpack.

Anyone with information about Pinson’s whereabouts is asked to call 784-1963, or to call 911 or 421-7090 if the information is urgent.

Sheriff’s officials encourage anyone who is a victim of domestic violence or who knows someone who is a victim of domestic violence to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE or the Solano County Office of Family Violence Prevention at 784-7635.

Walking and Running Safety Gear

Your Running, Walking, Jogging Must Have Safety Gear

The Wrist Saver, is your go to safety gear while you’re out on a long training run or just walking around the park.

It’s light weight, durable and most of all, packs some butt kicking power in a 1/2 ounce bottle of pepper spray. Just point and blast your attacker and you’ll have plenty of time to get away. They’ll think twice on attacking someone with a Wrist Saver again.


Some Great Safety Tips While Your Out Walking

  • Keep the Volume Down: Don’t drown out your environment with your iPod. Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear bike bells and warnings from other walkers and runners.
  • Hang Up and Eyes Up: Chatting or texting on a mobile device while you walk is as dangerous as doing those things while driving. You are distracted and not as aware of your environment. You are less likely to recognize traffic danger, passing joggers and bikers or tripping hazards. Potential criminals see you as a distracted easy target.
  • Choose your walking route for paths frequented by other walkers, joggers and bikers. If you see someone suspicious, be prepared to alter your course or go in to a store or public building to avoid them. Acting alert and aware can convince bad guys to choose an easier target.

Hiking Safety Tips

camping safety pepper sprayHiking And Camping Safety Tips To Help You Out On The Trails

It’s getting to be that time of the year. It’s time to start getting things ready for a nice Spring hike.  Along with having a Trail Saver in hand, below are some great hiking safety tips.

Make sure to check out our complete hiking and camping safety product, the Trail Saver.


  • Avoid hiking alone because the “buddy system” is safer during any type of activity. If traveling with a group, never stray from the group. If hiking alone, pick a well traveled trail.
  • Tell someone where you are going and when you will return.
  • Don’t forget to check in with them when you get back.
  • Stay on marked trails. Making shortcuts and “bushwhacking” causes erosion and greatly increases your chance of becoming lost. As you hike, pay attention to trail blazes (paint marks on trees) and landmarks. A double blaze indicates a change in trail direction or intersection, so be sure to follow the correct trail.
  • Never climb on waterfalls. A high number of injuries and deaths occur on waterfalls and slippery, wet rocks.
  • Always carry quality rain gear and turn back in bad weather. If you become wet or cold, it is important to get dry and warm as quickly as possible, avoiding hypothermia.
  • Dress in layers and avoid cotton. Today’s hikers can choose from numerous fabrics that wick moisture, dry quickly or conserve heat. Many experienced hikers wear a lightweight shirt that wicks moisture, while carrying a fleece pullover and waterproof jacket in a daypack.
  • All hikers (especially children and older adults) should carry a whistle, which can be heard far away and takes less energy than yelling. Three short blasts is a sign of distress.
  • Carry plenty of drinking water and never assume stream water is safe to drink. Frequent hikers might consider buying a water filter or water purifying tablets at an outdoor supply store.
  • Don’t count on cell phones to work in the wilderness, but if they do, be able to give details about your location. Telling rescue personnel that you’re lost by a big tree won’t help as much as telling which trailhead you started from and how long you’ve been hiking.
  • Don’t rely on a GPS to prevent you from getting lost. Batteries can die or the equipment can become damaged or lost.
  • Invest in good hiking socks and boots such as those found at sporting goods stores. Avoid blisters by carrying “moleskin” (available at drug stores) and applying it as soon as you feel a hot spot on your feet. Available in the foot care section of drug stores, moleskin is like felt that sticks to your skin.
  • Wear bright colors. Don’t dress children in camouflage.

Cycle Saver Pepper SprayHandlebar Pepper Spray Mount

After years of experience using cycling as a training tool to help national and world inline skating champions and Personal Savers founders, Chad Smith and Derek Downing train.  They came up with a sleek way to mount a pepper spray bottle to a bikes handlebars.  Just like skating, when they were riding their bikes, they had dogs nipping at their feet and always came across unruly motorist.

Being defenseless out on a country road is something every cyclist, would like to avoid.  When your out pedaling away with nothing to defend yourself with, you may decide to take an alternate route or go back from which you came.  With the Cycle Saver, pepper spray for biking, you don’t have to defenseless any longer.

The Cycle Saver was designed to be used by hardcore cyclists and recreation bikers with its low weight and out of the way mounting position.

The Cycle Saver pepper spray uses a simple plastic mounting system for your handlebars.  The U shaped mount, lets the ½ oz pepper spray bottle snap in between the U for an easy snap in, snap out system.  The U shaped mount lets you quickly and easily grab the pepper spray bottle to spray any dog or violent motorist.  Once you use the pepper spray, you snap it back and be on your way, while the attacker is incapacitated.

The ½ oz bottle of pepper spray shoots in a ballistic stream, so it will help you take aim on your bike. The pepper spray fans out, so your able to hit the dog or attacker right where you want to.  We do suggest that you dismount off your bike first, so not to crash while you’re shooting the spray.

Wrist Saver - Wristband pepper spray for runners, walker and hikers10 Walking and Running Safety Tips

You can never be to safe when you’re out running or walking.  With crime rates high, you always need to observe certain rules of safety whenever you’re working out.

This is always important but extremely important when you’re walking at night.  If you can follow these simple 10 walking safety rules, you’ll increase your odds of a safe, enjoyable walk.

Please share these with all your friends, it could help save a life some day.

1. Self-Defense:  Always carry a Personal Saver product to get you out of sticky situations.  We recommend the Wrist Saver pepper spray product since its designed for runners, walkers and hikers.  The Wrist Saver is light weight, comfortable and comes with a ½ oz pepper spray bottle along with an LED light, ID card and reflective edging.

2. Face Traffic: Your first choice should be walking on sidewalks or bike paths.  If must walk on the road, always walk in the direction of oncoming traffic.

3. Never Walk Alone:  Walk with a training partner.  This will not only increase your safety when walking, but will also make your walk more enjoyable.  If you’re not able to walk with a training partner, always let someone know where you’ll be walking and what time you expect to return.

4. Wear the Correct Clothing:  If you’re walking at night, dress to be seen.  Drivers in the early morning or a night are rarely looking out for walkers.  Always wear bright clothing with some sort of reflective material.  The Wrist Saver pepper spray product will help out in this area with the wristband being reflective and the LED light moves with your wrist, so you can be seen up to a mile away.  The worst type of clothing to wear in the dark is a black, navy or blue tracksuit, shorts or t-shirt.  This type of clothing will make you virtually invisible to the oncoming traffic.

5. Walk Defensively:  Assume that oncoming traffic and turning cars don’t know the ‘pedestrian has the right-of-way’ rule.

6. Change Up Your Routes:  Keep one or two steps ahead of any potential muggers.  If you change up your routes and times that you walk, it’s very unlikely a mugger will be able to predict when you’ll be out walking.  Plus, this keeps your workout fresh.

7. Carry Some ID:  Always carry some type of identification in case of an emergency.  This is another reason to carry the Wrist Saver pepper spray.  The Wrist Saver has a built ID card slot and comes with an ID card for you to fill out your information.  If you’re away from home on a trip, always write down where you’re staying.

8. Toss the Jewelry:  Keep all your valuables at home.  You’re just asking to get mugged if you’re flashing a gold necklace or bracelet.  The only accessory you need is a wrist watch and a Wrist Saver.

9. Leave the Music Home: If you’re distracted by your favorite song, you won’t be alert to any potential dangers, be it a dog, an oncoming car or the sounds of someone running up behind you.

10. Keep to Your Right:  If you’re walking on a cycling path or greenway, always walk on the right hand side, so bikers and faster walkers or runners can easily pass.

About Personal Savers

The idea for Personal Savers was born in 1995 by Derek Downing and Chad Smith, two national and world champion professional inline speed skaters. While training on the open roads in Georgia, they always came across unruly drivers and stray dogs nipping at their feet. Derek's father David Downing owned an in house pepper spray business that sold to police forces worldwide which helped spark the idea of the original Wrist Saver.

The original Wrist Saver was a crude version of itself today but the concept to keep people safe while being active was born. That idea grew into an actual company, but with the strains of traveling for competitions the business was put on hold...
