please let us know so we can help apprehend him and, again, just bring him in so people are safe. >> here's a physical description of ryan chamberlain. he is 6'3", 225 pounds. blue hair, brown eyes and probably not going to blend into the crowd very easily. he was last seen south of san francisco yesterday driving a white nissan altima. the tricky thing here is that the license plate could have been a california plate or could have been a texas plate. by the way, if you see him, call 911 because he is considered armed and dangerous. reporting live in san francisco, kris sanchez, nbc bay area. >> thank you. 5:02. today students returning to one oakland elementary school will see police officers on campus. comes after a parent recently attacked a student with a hammer.

"today in the bay" christie smith joins us live at the school. the suspect worked as a volunteer. everybody would have reason to trust her on campus. >> yeah, that's right. the information we're getting is that the mom was volunteer here and her presence certainly wouldn't raise any eyebrows. her being on campus but in the aftermath of what happened here. oakland police say they plan to have an officer stationed at the school today. just sort of a precaution to make families feel comfortable as they return back to school. this after a report of an early morning assault friday on the 9-year-old girl at lafayette elementary school. the district spokesman said the mom attacked the girl with a hammer. the little girl hospitalized and exse expected to recover.
this mom's daughter is an 8-year-old, also a student at the school, the woman took advantage of the familiarity she had with the students and staff here and led the 9-year-old from a playyard into a bathroom where this alleged assault occurred. they believe it was an isolated incident, possibly a feud between two families. >> our speculation at this time and this is based on early investigation is that there was a feud between two families and this was an act of vengeance or to punish the rival family. >> now, a teacher and a security guard noticed that the little girl wasn't in class. they walked around and then called into the bathroom and that spokesman said the mom and the little girl came out. the district sent home a note and brought in extra counselors and administrator to try and help the students to deal with it. reporting live in oakland, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> thank you. 5:34. lawyers for pg&e will be back in court to talk about the criminal

lawmakers be planned to do so that 30-day window did not happen. >> we did not have 30 days to wait. if we waited and lost him, i don't think anyone would have forgiven the united states government. >> the hardest of the hard core. these are the highest high-risk people. >> the faces of the five detainees are released. omar released a statement calling their release a victory and also released from the "hand of the enemy pe." this exchange could create a troubling precedent or encourage more kidnappings by the taliban. for more on this political situation, we will talk down the road here this morning to tracy in washington, d.c., she's covering that angle. some are saying, scott, this just really sets a dangerous pre tr precede precedent. normally they're notified so they know what is going to happen and you can see the urgency here. none of the politicians knew
