This little girl you’re about to see in this very short video clip is lucky to be alive.
And the only reason that she’s alive is that she fought back against a knife-wielding sex offender who tried to kidnap her at a bus stop in Florida.
The little girl is only 11-years-old. She was standing at a bus stop in Pensacola, Florida when the armed sex offender approached her – and the whole incident was caught on video.
The good news is that she fought back and scared the predator off…and there’s more good news is that 50 deputies flooded the area and ended up capturing the man.
He’s been launched charged with the attempted kidnapping of a child under 13 and aggravated assault and battery.
Bizpacreview reported that the Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons, the suspect, age 30, had “blue slime” on his arms when he was taken into custody. The young girl reportedly happened to be playing with blue slime before the attempted kidnapping. He was also allegedly wearing the same clothes as observed in the video. The same vehicle in question was also allegedly freshly painted black which was noticeable by the smell.
The sheriff also noted that the suspect allegedly has an extensive criminal history that includes “sexual offenses with a child.”
“It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what his intentions were, but they were not good,” he claimed.
Sheriff Simmons praised the girl — who fortunately escaped with just a few scratches — for her bravery, particularly given what could have been the outcome.
“Had this 11-year-old victim not fought –to fight and to fight — and to just never give up, this could have ended terribly,” he said. “My message to her is that she’s my hero; my message is that she did not give up.
“She did the right thing. She fought and she fought and she fought, and she never gave up, and then she went straight to her parents, which she should have done, told her parents what was going on, who in turn contacted the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, and we were able to muster 50 deputies in a really short time.”
Perhaps even more disturbing, the same man had reportedly approached the same girl about two weeks ago and made her feel uncomfortable. There was apparently no violence in that encounter, fortunately.

The Pensacola News Journal and other media outlets have identified the suspect as Jared Paul Stanga.
Here’s the press conference from the sheriff’s department:
Thank God that this little girl got away.
