We have all heard the saying a million times, “A dog is a man’s best friend.” Fortunately, this turned true in Virginia when a man was trying to abduct a 10-year-old girl from her neighborhood.
This happened on July 28th in Virginia.
A man was trying to kidnap a little girl who was taking her dog for a walk in the afternoon.
The abductor physically assaulted the little girl on her walk.
It was 3:45 pm when the little girl was taking her dog for a walk at the 1800 block of Heather Glenn Ct in Woodbridge.
The dog miraculously shooed the man away.
When the abductor held the girl by her arm, the dog bit him aggressively, releasing the girl from his hold.
Thankfully, the girl did not suffer from any injuries.
The Prince William County Police Department reported the incident on their Facebook.
