Temar Boggs, 15, was one of the teenagers in Lancaster Township, Pa., who helped save 5 year old Jocelyn Rojas after she was kidnapped in front of her grandmother’s house.
A group of heroic Pennsylvania teens helped save a 5-year-old girl when they chased down her kidnapper’s car on their bikes.
Jocelyn Rojas was snatched from her grandmother’s front yard in Lancaster Township last week on Thursday afternoon, sending police and K-9 units on a frantic, door-to-door search across the southeastern Pennsylvania hamlet.
Temar Boggs and Chris Garcia were helping a friend move a couch when cops stopped by to say the little girl was missing.
“We got all of our friends to go look for her,” Boggs, 15, told the news site. “We made our own little search party.”
Boggs, Garcia and a handful of others took off on their bikes and searched some woods and a nearby creek before spotting a maroon car with a white-haired man and a little girl inside, the site said.
Boggs said he and Garcia went after the car. After making a few turns in the neighborhood, the man opened the door and pushed the little girl out of the car.
Police said the kidnapper, described as a white man between 50 and 70, lured Jocelyn into his car by promising to take her for ice cream.
“As soon as the guy noticed we were chasing him, he stopped at the end of the hill and let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom,” Boggs told local WGAL-TV.
The teen put the tyke on his shoulders and brought her to police, who contacted her parents.
Police are still looking for the alleged kidnapper. Cops described him as a white man, between 50 and 70 years old, who walks with a limp. The car was described as a red or maroon-purple Chevy.
Boggs, meanwhile, said he doesn’t consider himself a hero.
“I’m just a normal person who did a thing that anybody else would do,” he said.
Now doesn’t a story like this makes George Zimmerman and the jurors who let him go free look like idiots???? This criminal was white, and the hero was Black….not to put race into it, but seriously?!?!?! This is the crazy world we live in
