    FL - Tug of War Between Mom & Man Trying to Kidnap Her Daughter (13)

    The moment hero mom tackles man trying to kidnap her 13-year-old daughter in a Florida Dollar General store

    Craig Bonello, 30, was arrested on Tuesday trying to flee Dollar General

    He was seen pushing a shopping cart before suddenly grabbing girl, 13

    He dragged her through the store, but her mom managed to stop him

    Off-duty sheriff's deputy happened to be walking into store when he fled

    Bonello was arrested and will be charged with kidnapping and child abuse

    The manager yelled as Bonello tried to flee, and off-duty deputy Jonathan Behnen happened to be walking into the store after spending the morning in court.

    Behnen blocked the 30-year-old's car as he tried to drive off and eventually arrested him.

    Go Mama Bear! This poor child. How terrifying. It's crazy how he attempted this in public. This man is seriously sick. Please let's hope he's locked up for a long time. He poses a huge threat to society.

    Is there any word on whether he knew the girl in any way, or was this a totally brazen stranger abduction attempt?
    JMO. MOO.

    Why didn't the manager lock the front doors? Or what is the procedure now for lost children or attempted abductions in stores? Didn't they used to lock the front doors? My memory is gone.

    That's also what I'm wondering as when I worked in retail, the procedure was that the doors were locked and employees had to help look for the missing child. It was even called a Code Adam because of Adam Walsh. That was maybe about 10 years ago since I was in retail, so I don't know if they still have that procedure in effect.
    Anything I post is my opinion.

    I'm sure there's a procedure but this looks like it happened in about 5 seconds. It's not like the mom went up to the counter and said her child was missing. The clerk probably thought it was a fight at first, not an abduction attempt.

    Horrifying that this kind of thing happens. I have 2 small children and I get nervous going somewhere with both of them together by myself. What a messed up world.

    The retail store I used to work for also called it a "Code Adam" but they didn't lock the front doors. As soon as the code was called the supervisors on the front end were supposed to go to the doors and watch anyone walking out. However, in this case, I am not sure there was enough time to lock the doors because this wasn't a normal "missing child" situation, it happened super fast.

    Watching that video really scared me. One of my biggest fears used to be me getting kidnapped but, every since I had my daughter, my worst fear is now her being kidnapped. I know I am over-protective but it's cases like this that make me that way.

    Ya, I couldn't tell from the video but one of the cable networks aired it & said mom finally sat on the daughters chest to keep him from taking her. Go mom!

    ETA: and thank God the off-duty cop was in the right place at the right time. bless him.

    I keep thinking thank God she was in the same aisle as her mom!!!!! A 13 year old would 100% be allowed to be looking at an aisle over in the Dollar General from their mom. Mom wouldn't have been able to grab on like she did. It scares the daylights out of me. That little girl was in for nothing good, if he got her!!!! Has anyone found his social media

    I haven't been able to locate it if he has one - but then again I am lousy at FB searches. I can never find anyone!

    Bonello said he has "done this before" but authorities have not found any evidence of other abduction attempts. The suspect said he did not know the mother or the teen, and did not say what he was planning to do with the girl.

    Alarming that he'd do this in a small store where there is people. He didn't just talk to a little kid and ask them to go with him. He started dragging a teenager!! How the hell did he think he'd get away with this? Sick individual needs to be locked up for a long time. Anyone who would even attempt to do what this man did is a huge threat to the safety of others.

    As far as I can see, authorities haven't spend much time looking for evidence. Are there any missing teenagers in the area?
    Just my opinion
