Little Girl Fights off Attempted Kidnapper
In Miami, Florida, a six-year old named Lyric was playing at the playground at her apartment complex when a man tried to abduct her. This is when she bit his arm, then he picked her up, slapped her in the face, and threw her on the ground and ran. Before the attempted kidnapping, Lyric was playing outside with siblings, the siblings ended up going inside and she stayed outside, sitting on the stairs.
She felt someone grab her arm, then pulled her toward the back of the staircase. Lyric started to fight back, so he picked her up and carried her. This is when she bit his arm, causing him to drop her. She ran around the building to tell her aunt and police were able to identify his white van, using surveillance. She said that her mother taught her to bite if in danger. The man that tried to abduct her was Leonardo Venegas. Police charged him with one count each of kidnapping and child abuse with no great bodily harm.
Playground fight leads to brutal attack with Acid
11 Year-old Deaira Summers was playing on the playground at Vernor Elementary School Detroit, Michigan. This is when Her cousin became involved in a fight with an unnamed 12 year-old. Deaira said that she had no involved in the fight. One of the mothers handled the girl a bottle and she threw it at Deaira, her siblings, and cousins. She said she felt it burning through her clothes and on her skin, so she ran home, screaming.
It was acid. The mother had the audacity to tell her that is what she gets for messing with her daughter. The 12 year-old charged with felonious assault and assault with intent to do great bodily harm, which are both felonies. At a preliminary hearing, a judge ordered a $10,000 bond with a tether, or GPS device. She’s not allowed to contact Deaira or any witnesses. Her next court date is set for July 18. The mother has not been charged, hopefully that will change.
