A little girl mouthed the words “Please help me, this is not my dad” when she was inside a church and one courageous mother overheard girl’s frantic cries for help and responded instantly, preventing an attempt to kidnap two young girls.
After two little girls, both under the age of 12, and their adult companion exited a restaurant together, a strange guy started following them. The guy gave the impression that he was going to “supervise” their walk home, but it was obvious that he had other plans in mind.
Jessica Lang, who works for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, subsequently provided an explanation in which she said that “he did not know these children and these children obviously did not know him.”
To their great relief, whenever they found themselves in need of assistance, they knew just where to turn: the church.
The two young ladies were traveling with their bicycles. They quickly climbed aboard and went to a church in the area in an effort to get away from the guy. The youngsters were able to reach the chapel despite the fact that the odd guy was following them.
The good Samaritan who ended up rescuing them claimed, “I spotted two youngsters riding their bicycles and a male adult behind them.”
The mother’s gut instinct alerted her right away that something wasn’t quite right. The mother said that one of the little kids had mouthed to her, “Please help me, this is not my dad”. The quick-thinking lady let the guy inside the church and continued to chat to him while she waited for the cops to arrive. The individual was placed under custody by the police when they located him a short distance away from the church.
The two young girls who had sought for assistance have successfully made it back to their house where they are safe and sound.
