HERNANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man has been taken into custody after surveillance video shows him trying to kidnap a teenage girl inside a store.

 

 

Citrus County deputies tell news outlets that 30-year-old Craig Bonello is facing charges of child abuse and kidnapping involving Tuesday's incident at a Dollar General Store in Hernando.

 

Investigators say video shows Bonello looking around before grabbing the 13-year-old girl and trying to drag her out of the store. The child's mother caught up to him and a tug of war ensued as the woman fought for her daughter. The suspect finally let go of the girl and ran.

 

The store manager alerted an off-duty deputy outside the store and the deputy blocked Bonello's car and arrested him.

It's unclear if Bonello has an attorney.
