“He pointed behind the house and said, ‘He went behind the house.’”
James did not hesitate to help TJ and called the cops while he was finding his keys.
Upon hearing the story, James started to look for his car keys, but TJ couldn’t wait to let the man get away. TJ then decided to chase after the man on foot when James caught up with him in his car.
TJ tailed the abductor up to this abandoned house while James and police were not yet available.
TJ was able to follow the man all the way an abandoned home. The strange man was then about to put the young girl through a window when James ran and tackled him. He held the man in place until police officers came to respond to the possible crime.
