Hero teens save 5-year-old by chasing kidnapper on their bikes

(NY Daily News) – A group of heroic Pennsylvania teens helped save a 5-year-old girl when they chased down her kidnapper’s car on their bikes.

Jocelyn Rojas was snatched from her grandmother’s front yard in Lancaster Township on Thursday afternoon, sending police and K-9 units on a frantic, door-to-door search across the southeastern Pennsylvania hamlet.

Temar Boggs and Chris Garcia were helping a friend move a couch when cops stopped by to say the little girl was missing, Lancaster Online reported.

“We got all of our friends to go look for her,” Boggs, 15, told the news site. “We made our own little search party.”

Boggs, Garcia and a handful of others took off on their bikes and searched some woods and a nearby creek before spotting a maroon car with a white-haired man and a little girl inside, the site said.

Boggs said he and Garcia went after the car. After making a few turns in the neighborhood, the man opened the door and pushed the little girl out of the car.

…The teen put the tyke on his shoulders and brought her to police, who contacted her parents.

  1. According to the current “protestors”, this guy should have instead stayed out of it; not followed the suspect.

    I’m glad he didn’t go by their logic. Instead, he did the right thing – at great danger to himself.

  2. Why didn’t the national racist mud slinging media jerks put this on their “Just IN” headlines????
