DAVIE – Davie police say a 6-year-old girl likely prevented an abduction when she kicked and bit a man who grabbed her.
The 6-year-old was playing with other friends around 7:15 pm. Wednesday when, the children said, a man jumped out of some bushes and grabbed her.
The girl’s father said the man grabbed the girl’s arm, but she began to kick, scream and bite, so he released her and she ran away.
When asked what happened, the child said, “He tried to hurt me … I bit him”
The child’s parents have asked that their name not be released because they are fearful because the man is still on the loose.
The girl’s parents said that she knew what to do because they had taught her about “stranger danger.”
If you have any information that might help investigators, you are asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at (954) 471-TIPS
