    OH - Girl escapes kidnapping by hitting abductor with a hammer

    http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/8186167/detail.html

    If I read the article right, the hammer was in the abductors vehicle. I can't help but think it was meant for the girl.....

    How lucky she is to get away; very fortunate she was clear-headed when she needed to be.

    *snip*

    Police said the girl told them she remembered a lesson from school to always search for a weapon in that kind of situation. So she told her abductor she had dropped her ring in the car and went searching for it. That's when she felt the hammer under her seat.

    *snip*

    A shining example of why all children must be taught what to do in situations like these.....

    Would be abductor still sought

    Police in Toledo, Ohio, said the quick-thinking girl found it in the man's car and used it to hit him in the groin.



    The girl told police the man forced her into his car at gunpoint while she was walking to her school bus stop Tuesday.

    She said she hit him with it, then ran to her grandmother's house.



    The suspect is still being sought

    Gee, someone with a killer limp, a major grimace on their face and who's NOT looking to have sex anytime soon would be some good clues to start with on finding him

    awkward

    If he was seated in the drivers seat it makes me wonder if hitting him in the groin with a hammer would have been a bit of an awkward thing to attempt.

    Maybe he was in a different position than I envisioned.

    I had started a new thread on this same topic earlier today (yesterday to some). Here's what I had posted, but deleted after finding this thread.

    Thank goodness for this Toledo girl's fast thinking! It saved her from the unthinkable!

    Here's another link about the parents praising their daughter:

    I only wish she could have clobbered him in the face or head, too; leaving some visible marks, to aid in his arrest. Nevertheless, she still did great!


    Wow! A rash of abduction attempts in Toledo this past week, which police think are unrelated.

    Hope that all these perps are caught, and soon!
