HAMILTON, Ohio (WJW) – Video shows the horrific moments of a man attempting to kidnap a 6-year-old girl in Ohio.
It happened Tuesday in Hamilton, Ohio.
Home security footage of Mandie Miller-Nash shared with Storyful shows the child outside the family home. You can see a man walking on the sidewalk stops, touches the child and grabs his arm.
The girl screamed and freed herself from his grip, quickly running inside.
“I walked in, like, ‘What’s wrong? What is wrong?’ He said, ‘Someone tried to kidnap me. Some guy tried to take me, and he took my private parts,’” Mandie told WLWT.
Deric McPherson of Hamilton faces charges of kidnapping and gross sexual coercion.
According to reports, the boy’s father followed McPherson, helping direct police to the suspect.
“I always tell him that if someone touches him, talks to him or grabs him, make a fuss, scream as loud as he can and fight back. He screamed bloody murder and pulled him towards him and away from him,” Ricky told the station.
