Warning After Armed Citizen Saves Terrified 11-Year-Old Girl

I remember growing up we used to all play outside, walk to school and back, and ride our bikes everywhere without the fear of being hurt or kidnapped.

Everyone knew mom and dad meant business when the streetlights came on, our little bodies had better be back home and inside.

Whether it was mom, dad or the neighbors we were all watched like hawks.

Sometimes a little bit too much, because we could never get away with anything when!

Today it is hard to let our kids step foot outside because there is always a chance ten times greater than when we were young something would happen.

Whether on the tv or newspaper, we hear bad things happening to children everywhere. Earlier this month, in Phoenix, Arizona, an 11-year-old girl was almost another victim until an armed witness stepped in and saved the little girl.

We always hear how bad guns are, how they kill people, and how they should be banned.

Seldom, we ever hear of how guns saved lives, or how they prevented further attacks from criminals.

That is what happened on, April 9, 2019.

The 11-year-old girl, whose name was not released due to her being a minor, was walking to school when she was grabbed by the arm and the face as he tried to kidnap her.

There was a man nearby who witnessed the incident, and he knocked the suspect down.

The citizen pulled out his gun when the suspect took off running and got away after he was staring down the barrel of the hero’s pistol as he told him forcefully, “Leave the girl alone.”

It is scary to think what could have happened if the citizen did not have his gun.

It is disappointing the suspect got away, but at the same time, because the armed hero was ready with his firearm, he was able to think quick and safe and save the little girl from harm.

There are many stories like this one which goes unannounced, or they are only mentioned on the area’s local news.
The police in the Phoenix area are still searching for the suspect.

The principal of the school sent out a note to all the parents informing them of the incident which occurred and sent it to Fox 10 News in Phoenix to get the word out to the public.

Everyone who has children should read it and inform their children of the dangers that are around them every day which is something we did not have to face much growing up.

The letter reads as follows:

“Dear Parents & Guardians,

The safety of your child is a priority of Village Meadows Elementary School and the Deer Valley Unified School District.

With that in mind, there is some information that we feel is important to share with you as we work together to maintain a secure campus and safe community for our students.

A student reported to a Village Meadows teacher that on Wednesday, April 3, while walking to school, she was grabbed by a man from behind.

A witness knocked the man down and told him to leave the student alone.

The student was able to safely and quickly get away from the man. The suspect was last seen running westbound on Morningside Drive.

Phoenix Police are investigating this incident and describe the suspect as a black male with a dark complexion, green eyes, and a stud style nose ring in his left nostril.

He was wearing a black hoody.

This incident reminds how important it is to talk to children about what to do if a stranger approaches or if they witness suspicious behavior.

Please take a moment to share these safety tips with your child:

*Always walk or ride in groups
*Pay attention to your surroundings
*Do not talk to strangers, if approached
*If approached, run away immediately, and tell a parent, school staff member or call 911
*Do not wait for parent pick-up/rides home in areas outside of campus that are not supervised

Phoenix Police has issued a media advisory and will be monitoring the area around the school where students walk to and from school.

We will continue to watch for strangers near campus and report them to police. If you have any information or see suspicious activity, contact the Phoenix Police immediately at 602-534-2121.

Thank you for your support towards creating a safe, orderly, and caring environment at Village Meadows Elementary School.

  1. Every time I see positive incidents like this, I think about the lunatic liberals who want to take away our guns. If they do that, it will give the criminals a clear advantage to attack law abiding citizens. The Second Amendment is part of the Constitution and must be protected from the lunatic liberals.

  2. They should fire all of the damned democrats as they haven’t done squat since trump got in and got paid for doing nothing.

  3. A sad commentary on how America has changed. I grew up in the 50s to mid 60s, we could play anywhere as long as we wanted if we told our parents where and how long. Now… No Way would that happen. The safety we had then has “gone away”. Child predators roam freely, and seldom get caught, or they have “good” lawyers get them very short prison terms.
