(CBS4) CHICOPEE Two children are safe, thanks to the quick thinking of
Francisco Rodriquez, 16 — a bell ringer for the Salvation Army at the
Wal-Mart in Chicopee.
Two days ago, Mark Klimek, 32, of Holyoke was taken into custody and
charged with two counts of kidnapping, two counts of assault and battery
after he allegedly tried to abduct two children. Police say the suspect
tried to snatch a ten-month-old baby girl unsuccessfully, and then
attempted to grab a four-year-old boy.
Rodriquez, patrons and security were able to hold Klimek down until
police arrived on the scene.
Klimek was sent to a hospital for mental evaluation. He will appear in
court sometime in January.
