KID NABBER: Little Girl Escapes Candy-Offering Man Who Approached Her Twice

This is the disturbing moment a 10-year-old girl escapes a man who approached her in an apparent attempt to kidnap her for the second time in the same week near her school.

Newsflash obtained the footage from the Fort Lauderdale Police Department (FLPD), along with a short statement according to which a suspicious male, estimated to be 40-50 years old, allegedly tried to abduct the young girl as she walked to and from her school in Fort Lauderdale, in the US state of Florida.

Detectives are working hard to find the man who approached the girl offering her money and candy and trying to lure her into his van on the morning of 19th October.

The girl refused, and the man tried to grab her, but thankfully she was able to run away.

But the man came back to pester the girl the following day, 20th October, this time on foot.

Surveillance footage shows the frightened 10-year-old running for her life and into the schoolyard.
