Three people have been arrested.

Cops earlier told reporters that they had detained a woman as ‘a person of interest’ due to inconsistent information in her statements about the incident.

The woman who was taken into custody was with the grandmother before she was abducted by a man who remains unknown, San Jose Police Sgt Christian Camarillo said on Tuesday.

‘This was a person who was with the grandmother yesterday when they went shopping, she was present at the apartment complex when this happened,’ Camarillo said. ‘There have been some inconsistencies with what she has told us. Obviously, drawing our attention to what she knows about this.’
