The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says a man reached through the girl's bedroom window last night, grabbed her and ran down the street with her. Family members ran after him and got the child back.

Authorities say when sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene they set up a perimeter and arrested the man without incident.

They say the girl was startled, but she's OK.

Officials have not released the name of the girl or the suspect.
