(KMOV) – Police say a Chicago boy saved his neighbor when stopped a man from abduct her.
Six-year-old Kaylen Woodard and his neighbor, 10-year-old Marcy, were playing outside when a stranger got out of a car and tried to take the girl.
“The only way she got away is because I kicked him in the back of the leg and the outside of his leg,” said Woodard.
The children were only 20 feet from the front door when he attempted to abduct them.
Marcy’s mother ran out to try and find the man, but he had already driven off.
Police were called and a report was filed.
The investigation is ongoing.
