SPOKANE, Wash. -

It was a terrifying few moments Saturday afternoon when a man grabbed a 10-year-old girl playing just feet from her front door on Crestline and Everett.

Two 10-year-old girls were playing next to a tree on Everett when they noticed the man following them. The suspect grabbed one of the girls by the neck and carried her away kicking and screaming. The mother of one of the girls say they are lucky they were able to escape. It was her daughter that stepped in front of the man's car and kept him from driving away with her friend.

The mother asked to remain anonymous, but says this is something he had to have planned and worries other children are at risk until he is caught.

Police describe the suspect as a tan or Hispanic man in his late to early 40's. Neighbors captured surveillance video of a dark green SUV leaving the neighborhood after the incident. Police believe that is the suspect's car. If you have any information you are asked to call crime check at 509-456-2233.
