Mom Chases Down Child Abductor; Girl Now Safe

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police say a mother whose 4-year-old was being abducted chased the suspect down and crashed her vehicle into his car, triggering a manhunt.

Police say Wednesday evening a group of teenagers saw the child being forced into a car in Albuquerque’s North Valley. The teens alerted the mother, who jumped into her vehicle and gave chase for about seven miles, unaware the man had pushed the girl out of the car shortly after grabbing her. The girl was not injured.

The mother followed the suspect and finally rammed into his car near an intersection. He fled on foot.

Police are still searching for the man, who they say matches the description of a suspect who sexually assaulted and returned a girl in the same neighborhood last week.
