8-Year-Old Fights Off Kidnapper

8-Year-Old Girl Gets Away From Potential Kidnapper

An 8-year-old Aurora, CO, girl kicked and screamed her way to safety after facing a potential kidnapper, The Stir reports. According to police, the girl was in her bedroom doing homework when a man cut through the window screen, put his hand around her mouth, and kidnapped her. As the man dragged her away from the house, she struggled and screamed, alerting her father to run outside, where he found her in an alleyway. While the perpetrator, unfortunately, is still at large, police say the girl’s efforts probably saved her own life.

To find out how much police are offering for tips that will lead to the abductor's capture, read the whole story on The Stir.
