Temar Boggs and Chris Garcia – Hero Teens Save 5-Year-Old – Tonight’s Posse Positive People
Whenever I run across a story that has a positive slant, I make it my business to relate it to you. Hence the “Ray’s Ray of Hope – Posse Positive Person, or in this case, People.
This is a great story about 2 teenagers who took it upon themselves to rescue a 5 year old girl who’d just been reported kidnapped allegedly by someone fitting the description of a 50 to 70 year old man.
They actually chased the man down on their bikes until he stopped his car and released the girl.
According to this:
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.
"As soon as the guy noticed we were chasing him, he stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom," Boggs told local WGAL-TV.
The teen put the tyke on his shoulders and brought her to police, who contacted her parents.
Police are still looking for the alleged kidnapper. Cops described him as a white man, between 50 and 70 years old, who walks with a limp. The car was described as a red or maroon-purple Chevy.
Police said he lured the little girl into the car by offering her ice cream and that there was evidence the girl had been assaulted, Lancaster Online reported.
Boggs, meanwhile, said he doesn't consider himself a hero.
"I'm just a normal person who did a thing that anybody else would do," he said.
He’s right, but it still deserves kudos nonetheless.
That’s why you needed to hear it.
