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.

Your Running, Walking, Jogging Must Have Safety Gear

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.

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.

Where can I buy the Cycle Saver pepper spray?

You can purchase the Cycle Saver pepper spray on our  online store as well as replacement bottles of pepper spray and extra Cycle Saver mounts for other bikes.

10 Walking Safety Tips

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.

Added Self Defense For Walking Or Running Mom’s & Their Babies

Posted on May 30th, 2013

Baby Protection, Pepper SprayAdded Self Defense For Walking Or Running Mom’s & Their Babies

If you’re a jogging, running or walking mom with a stroller or wheeled jogger.  You and your baby are easy prey for any attacker.  The Baby Saver pepper spray model is your chance to be in control of a bad situation.

If a stray dog starts running towards you to attack your baby or bite at your feet, you can easily pull your pepper spray bottle out of the Baby Saver holder and stop the dog in his tracks.   The flipside to this, is if you had nothing to defend you and your baby, both of you could have gotten seriously injured.

Any stranger looking for an easy victim to mug or kidnap will be looking for a defenseless women.   With the Baby Saver pepper spray unit, you can spray a high powered stream of the hottest pepper spray on the market up to 10 feet away towards any threatening person.  This will put the attacker on his knees and give you time to get your baby and yourself out of the area.

Being prepared is key to you and your babies safety while you’re out jogging, running or walking in parks, sidewalks or simply in your neighborhood.

Besides having a self defense spray, here are some other help tips before you head out with your stroller or wheeled jogger.

Lock the front wheel

Some jogging strollers have a fixed front wheel, while others have a switch that allows you to lock and unlock the wheel. When you’re running with the stroller, it’s safest to lock the front wheel in place. This will prevent the stroller from turning suddenly and causing you to crash or fall.

Pack wisely

Most jogging strollers have a basket underneath, as well as other compartments or holders, so you should have plenty of room for things you might need during your run. Don’t forget diapers, wipes, water (for you and your child), snacks, and a toy or book to entertain your child.  Don’t forget to strap on your Baby Saver pepper spray before heading out.

Protect your child from the elements

Remember that you’ll warm up because you’re running, but your child will not. So bundle her up in the cooler weather. If it’s cold and windy, you may want to use a weather shield for your stroller. On warm days, make sure your child is not overdressed and protected with the stroller’s visor as well as sunscreen. Keep your runs short on very cold or hot days (or leave your child with your spouse or sitter).

Strap your child in with the full harness

The harness will protect your child from falling out or getting shaken. Even if you’re not moving too quickly, the harness will prevent him from reaching out and getting his fingers caught in the wheels.

Avoid running near cars as much as possible

It is a good idea to run in parks, bike paths, or other areas where the roads are closed to traffic.

Schedule runs wisely

Before naptime is often a good time for a run because the movement may put your child to sleep. It’s not a good idea to try to run right before a meal, when your child will be hungry and may not want to sit in the stroller.

Don’t run hands-free

You may be tempted to push your stroller a little and let it go, so you can run hands-free, but it’s not a good idea. The stroller could easily get away from you, which is unsafe for your child and anyone else around you.

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...
