6-year-old girl rescued by Louisville police after being kidnapped
A 6-year-old girl who was kidnapped Friday was then rescued in about 30 minutes by two Louisville Metro Police Officers, according to the citation given to CNN by the police department.
The suspect, who has no relation or custody of the girl, allegedly told police he saw the girl “playing outside near the street, circled the block, and then took her from the side of the road.”
The suspect, identified as Robby Wildt, also told police that as the girl cried in the front of his car, he tried to “console her before deciding he knew what he was doing was wrong,” according to the citation.
He began to drive back to the location he took her from, afraid he may hurt her, it said.
Witnesses to the kidnapping called 911 with a partial license plate number and a detailed description of the event and several police divisions, K-9 and Air Units responded, the Louisville Metro Police Department said in a statement.
Body camera footage released by the department shows Sgt. Joe Keeling locating Wildt’s vehicle and stopping the suspect until back-up arrives and takes the suspect into custody. Continue Reading
