In Virginia, a 10-year-old girl was walking her dog when a man appeared next to her and grabbed her arm with force.

She was walking her dog on the streets of Heather Glen Court in Woodbridge when the man tried to abduct her. However, the dog immediately reacted and didn’t let anything happen to his owner. Her dog bit the man’s arm and scared him off. Thanks to the dog, the man let go of the little girl’s arm and ran away from the scene on foot.

After the incident, the police were contacted and officers with K9 dogs immediately arrived at the scene. However, they couldn’t find the suspect.
