Mom With Shotgun Chases Kidnapper, Saves Daughter

Posted: Updated:
FRESNO COUNTY, Calif. (KMPH) -

A two-year-old girl is safe with her mother after she was kidnapped near Fowler Tuesday morning.

Fresno County sheriff's deputies say the mother saved the little girl by pointing a shotgun at the kidnapper.

This all started around 8:45 a.m. when investigators say a man knocked on the door of a home near Maple and South avenues. The woman inside did not answer, and the man broke in. The two got into a fight, and she was kicked to the ground.

Investigators say the man grabbed the woman's two-year-old daughter and ran out of the home. They say the woman ran out with a shotgun and pointed it at the suspect, telling him to put the child down, which he did.

Authorities say the man got away in an older model Honda Civic or Accord, "Walmart" blue in color, with a primered passenger door, modified exhaust and tinted windows.

The suspect is described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic man, in his early 20s, with dirty blonde hair. He was wearing a long sleeve camouflage shirt, shorts and a black ski mask.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff's Office at (559) 488-3111.
