KANSAS CITY -- Kansas City Missouri Police have a bizarre case on their hands. A man who was reportedly high on PCP fell out of a moving car. He then got run over but was able to get up. The accident led to a child abduction attempt and landed the man in the hospital.
The accident happened around 2 p.m. on Saturday near I-70 & Blue Ridge Cutoff. Witnesses tell FOX 4 that a lot of people stopped to help the man who appeared to be seriously hurt.
The man then got up and tried to open the doors of one of the cars that tried to help him. When he opened the back door, he tried to take a one-month-old baby who was inside a car seat. The parents say they kept yelling at him and pulling the car seat so he couldn't take the baby. That's when other people who had stopped stepped in to help.
"He was just trying to grab her out of the backseat and I got out and grabbed him and told him let go of my daughter and he wouldn't let go," said parent Matthew Nicotra.
According to friends, the man involved in this abduction attempt is actually a victim himself. He lost his daughter about a month ago. They believe he saw the little girl and it reminded him of his daughter. They also say they don't think he was trying to hurt the baby.
As of now, the suspect is in an area hospital pending charges including attempted child abduction.
