4-year-old girl nearly kidnapped in Gila Bend

A girl was nearly taken from a car by a man reportedly high on drugs in Gila Bend on Wednesday night, according to the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office.

The 4-year-old girl was inside the car with a couple when the father stepped out to lock the door to his house, and a stranger went into the car and grabbed the victim by the arm, MCSO said.

The girl was somehow able to get away and was not hurt. Deputies said there wasn’t a struggle.

The suspect got scared and ran off into the fields, possibly onto the reservation, MCSO said.

The victims said the man was on drugs.

Deputies have launched their helicopter to search for the suspect from the air while they search on the ground.

The suspect is described as a thin Hispanic or Native American man, between 20 and 30 years old, and was last seen wearing a brown shirt, blue sweats and a blue hat.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call MCSO.
