A mom takes matters into her own hands when a stranger tries to kidnap her five-year-old daughter Wednesday evening.  

Investigators said the male suspect attempted to take a 5-year-old girl from the 1700 block of Indian School Road NW at the St. Anthony Apartments. It all started at approximately 6:35 p.m., according to APD.

Authorities said the girl’s mother chased the male suspect’s car in her own vehicle. Investigators said the suspect was still driving when he pushed the child out of the vehicle a few blocks from where he took her. During the chase the child’s mother crashed her car into the suspect’s before he fled the scene.

APD detectives have set up a perimeter near Ortiz and Kathryn. They are still actively looking for the suspect.
