What a hero!
Roxanna Ramirez works at Target as a loss prevention specialist, but she went far and beyond her call of duty this past Friday!
She was working at the store in the Pittsburg store in the Bay Area of California when she noticed a person, who will later be identified as David Douglas, acting super weird inside and outside the store as he was lingering for hours, wearing a backpack.
It was enough to spark her interest into checking him out in the parking lot where he started acting downright freaky like pacing back and fourth, changing clothes repeatedly, and grabbing his steering wheel and shaking it.
Basically she was NOT getting a "good vibe" from him! So she decided to jot down his license number, which turned out to be a genius move because she later saw an Amber alert for 7-year-old Natalie Calvo and the kidnapping suspect's information matched the guy whose license number she wrote down.
She called the police and FORTY FIVE MINUTES LATER the suspect was handcuffed and the little girl was saved!
In a super creepy insight into this man's world - it turns out the suspect had followed three children that day and was trying to determine which one would be the easiest to steal.
But thanks to Roxanna - the guy is in jail, the little girl was reunited with her family in less than four hours, and this Target employee is a hero!
Props to this good samaritan for going above and beyond the average citizen's duty! Amazing.
