A little 10-year-old girl from Woodbridge, Virginia was outside walking her dog like she had many other times before in her neighborhood. Suddenly a strange man quickly approached her and grabbed her by her arm roughly.
The police say that the man tried to kidnap the little girl, little did he know that she had a fierce protector who was not going to let any harm come to her.
The dog immediately jumped and bit the said kidnapper, which was enough for him to let go of the young girl and flee the scene.
According to The Prince William County Police Department, the man then fled from the residential area and the police are still on the look out for him.
