The incident occurred at 7 am on Tuesday in Pensacola, Florida. According to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office that posted the video, an 11-year-old girl was waiting at a bus stop while a man with a knife tried to escape from a white Dodge Journey.
The video shows a man running towards a girl sitting in a grassy field next to his backpack. The girl tries to escape before she can catch him. As she pulls her back towards the car, they both fall to the ground, at which point the girl is free, grabs her backpack and runs away. The man returns to the car and walks away.
Lawmakers arrested 30-year-old Jared Paul Stanga and accused him of attempted kidnapping, severe assault, and battering a child under the age of 13.
“We caught the animal,” Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons told reporters. The sheriff said lawmakers were quickly working to find the suspect, looking for surveillance video, tracking down witnesses, and going house-to-house. About 50 lawmakers surveyed the area, including bicycle units, Simmons said.
“We realize we only have a short time,” Simmons said. “We wanted to make sure they didn’t leave this van, they didn’t leave the city.”
Simmons said the investigation took lawmakers to Stanga’s home and found him in clothes that matched the clothes the man in the video wore. Simmons said he had a vehicle similar to the one sought by officers, although his silver bumper was newly painted black. Simmons said the suspect allegedly had “blue slime” all over his arms. The sheriff said the girl was playing with a blue slime during the kidnapping attempt.
According to Simmons, Stanga has a “extensive” criminal history, including a previous charge involving a sexual offense with a child.
“Our concern is not this is his first try,” said the sheriff, who “shocked” something like this in Escambia County.
Simmons said about two weeks ago the suspect approached the 11-year-old girl and told her family, teachers, and principal. “He knew something was wrong,” he said.
Authorities said the girl was safe with her family after the incident on Tuesday. Simmons hailed him as a hero. “We appreciate the efforts and endurance of an 11-year-old girl,” says Simmons. Said. “He did the right thing – he fought, fought, and never gave up. Then he went straight to his parents, what he had to do, told his family what had happened, and then contacted Escambia. The County Sheriff’s Office.”
“We got the information so quickly … our suspect tried to paint his car,” he said.
