A six-year-old girl narrowly escaped her would-be kidnapper, Deric McPherson, who tried to pick her up and leave with her right outside of her Ohio home.
Ken’Adi Nash, of Hamilton, was taking out the trash when Deric McPherson, 33, also of Hamilton, allegedly tried to kidnap her on Wednesday.
Footage showed suspect Deric McPherson, 33, first grabbing the girl before he then tried to drag her away.
The girl pulled back and let out a piercing scream.
She was able to wriggle away from McPherson, and she immediately ran inside her home and told her parents.
“This guy walked by and he touched me and pulled me,” the girl told ABC’s “Good Morning America” this week. “He just let go of me because I screamed.”
The girl’s father Ricky Nash said he then jumped into his car and followed McPherson while he contacted the police.
