According to the Chandler, Arizona authorities, an 11-year-old boy was able to fight off a child kidnapper, thus saving the life of his five-year-old sister. Both children are fine and didn’t need any medical treatment after the event. The authorities are currently searching for the individual who attempted to nab the five-year-old girl.
A spokesperson for the Chandler Police Department that an 11-year-old boy managed to save his sister from the clutches of a kidnapper. According to the police report, the incident occurred on Wednesday, at approximately 2:00 pm, near a school bus stop located at the intersection of Dobson and Ray roads.
The 11-year-old boy was just returning home from school with his five-year-old sister when a black SUV pulled near them. According to the boy’s statement, after the vehicle stopped, a man, reportedly wearing a black ski mask, got out of the car and, without saying even one word, he grabbed the little girl’s backpack, trying to shove her in the back of the vehicle.
Without hesitation, the boy went to his sister’s attacker and punched him right in the arm. Reportedly, the individual got so confused about the hit he sustained that he jumped back inside his car, thinking that the authorities might be nearby.
When the individual left, the Chandler boy called the authorities, which arrived in just a few minutes. After examining the children, the officers determined that none of them was hurt during the wanton encounter with the suspect.
However, the individual’s sudden disappearance leaves the Chandler residents with many unanswered questions and doubts. According to the individual who owns the house next to the bus station where the kidnapping attempt occurred, this is the first time someone tried to kidnap a child in the quiet town of Chandler, information confirmed by the local authorities.
Unfortunately, because the individual was wearing a mask when he tried to kidnap the boy’s five-year-old sister, the authorities are having trouble identifying him. The only pieces of reliable information that they have so far are that the child kidnapper might be 5-foot-10 or 5-foot-10 and that he might be driving a black SUV or minivan.
To this end, the authorities are requesting the help of Chandler residents. If anyone heard or saw anything on Wednesday afternoon, they are asked to call the authorities. We don’t have any information regarding a possible report.
