A brother and sister’s cries for help lead to pedestrians stepping in to save a 22-month-old Washington child from an attempted abductor.
According to ABC7, surveillance cameras caught a man running with the child he grabbed from a stroller at a Sprague, Washington park on Sunday. Little Owen Wright was playing with his brother and sister while being watched by a family friend. When the suspect grabbed their brother, 8-year-old Delicia and 10-year-old Brenden sprung into action and chased the suspect down the street.
Pedestrian Dorothy Giddings took notice and asked two teens nearby to help. The teens chased the suspect into a vacant lot, where he dropped the child and fled.
“I told that little girl, I said, ‘Honey, you did exactly what you needed to do scream your head off,’” Giddings said of Owen’s sister. “That’s what saved that baby. Her screaming and us running.”
“I didn’t really care. There was a kid’s life in danger,” said one of the teens, Andrew Crane. “I don’t consider myself a hero. I consider myself a person doing the right thing,” said another, Isaac Yow.
Unfortunately, the suspect was not caught by police. The child was unharmed.
