This is absolutely terrifying!
A Florida man was arrested after seen on camera dragging a teen girl through a grocery store in a failed attempt to kidnap her.
The disturbing video reportedly showed Craig Bonello casually pushing a shopping cart in a Dollar General before violently grabbing the 13-year-old girl in attempt to drag her out of the store.
Luckily, the young teen’s mother caught up to the suspect and, after a hard-fought tug-of-war, freed her daughter from his grasp.
The 30-year-old then tried to flee the scene, but was caught by an off-duty officer who happened to be in the store at the time.
According to a police statement, Deputy Jonathan Behnen “jumped into action, pulling his patrol car in front of the suspect’s vehicle as he tried to exit the parking lot. He then ordered the man out of the car with his weapon in hand.”
After being arrested, Bonello — who already has a criminal history including trespassing and aggravated battery — will be charged with kidnapping and child abuse.
Thankfully, this sicko was caught before he was able to abduct a child. Watch the harrowing footage (below) to see the failed kidnapping attempt:
