After breaking into a California home, a burglar decided to try to abduct an 8-year-old girl. Unfortunately for him, it was only after grabbing the little girl that he learned the secret she was hiding – and that’s when he ran out of the home in horror.
It all started early Sunday morning as a mother and her children were sleeping in their home in El Cajon, California. For reasons unknown, a man broke into their house and gained entry through an open window on the first floor – but things got much worse.
The man hadn’t made his way into the home to steal anything in particular – but rather someone. After walking into a room where an 8-year-old girl and her brother were sleeping, he quickly snatched up the girl and started to walk downstairs with her.
Much to his surprise, this was about the time that the girl woke up and decided to expose the little secret she had been hiding behind her tiny and unthreatening build. According to reports, the girl had been trained in the martial arts, and she decided to put her Kung Fu to use.
Although it’s unclear what the girl did exactly, she used some type of “Kung Fu pressure move” on the man’s neck, which was enough to cause him to drop her. The little girl ran back to her room, but this invader wasn’t quite done there.
Luckily, he only reentered the room and said a few choice words before jumping out the bedroom window. As one would imagine, the girl’s mother is glad everything worked out the way that it did, but she hopes to ensure that it will never happen to anyone else again. “I’m relieved that this is the story I get to tell – that she’s in my home, here, and safe,” the mother explained. “My kids are supposed to be safe while they are sleeping.”
Police brought in a K9 unit to search for the man but came up empty. Since that time, they have appealed to the public for help finding the man. Fox 59 further reports:
As of Sunday evening, the suspect had not been caught. He’s described as a tanned adult man wearing dark clothing and a backpack with many zippers and smelled of “garbage.” He had dark “fluffy” hair, thin build and was between 5-feet, 8-inches to 5-feet, 10-inches tall.
Anyone with information about the case should call El Cajon Police Department at 619-579-3311.
One can only imagine what this mother must have felt after learning about the series of events that took place in her home. This situation proves why we need to remain vigilant and prepared.
If this girl didn’t know martial arts, who knows how this situation would have played out in the end. Unfortunately, it would have likely ended much differently. Let’s just hope that police are able to track down this man because there is no room in this world for those who prey on children.
