Two charged with child abduction


WILMINGTON, NC ( -- A 4-year-old girl is safe after two men tried to abduct her Saturday in Wilmington, according to officials.

On Saturday, the girl was playing outside the Motown Mini Mart at 1230 S. 15th St. while her grandmother was shopping inside, said Linda Rawley, a Wilmington Police Department spokeswoman.

Shortly after 2 p.m., two men approached the girl. One of them said he lived in the woods and asked her if she wanted to go with them, Rawley said.

There is nothing I hate more

There is nothing I hate more then a child molester. If they tried to do it, they should be executed.

The child walked 20 feet with them. That's just 7 or 8 steps. I have a hard time with guilt, simply on that. Did they try to pull her hand ? Did they truly coax her, or pick her up ? I think we need to see if either is a sex offender, or has been arrested for similar incidents.

I agree with the previous poster. There are several people in that area, that are more then happy to "Bury Whitey". Hopefully, that is not the case here. But, this is extremely serious, and we need to take a close look at the "witnesses", and all factors.

Homeless guys?

I doubt it if they are homeless. Most homeless people that I've seen don't have neatly trimmed beards. Have they positively identified these two and are they on some sex offender registry somewhere?

If they actually did do it,

If they actually did do it, I hope they fry.
But I have to ask.......
Why did grandma leave a 4 year old outside, unsupervised ?
Like puppies, little children always follow someone who may pass by and say a kind word ?
Did they actually try to grab, coax, or take, the child with them ?
Exactly how far did they get with the child ? If they even noticed she was following them at all ?

In that area, witnesses, and onlookers, are more then happy, to flavor things up, cooperate, and overreact, when its a case of "Gotcha Whitey". This is next to Hillcrest, where a man was recently shot dead, in front of 30 people, who didn't see a thing.

This is a very serious. And I hope all facts are carefully weighed.

These types of people should

These types of people should be permanently removed from society. If they will do this in the light of day, they will try again.

That being said, shame on grandma for not keeping an eye on the child.

bad grandma

Grandma needs to have child endangerment charges filed against her, who let's a four year old outside playing while your shopping. Where's the common sense in people these days?

If found guilty... .45 round to the head of each.

don't always see eye to eye with you guesty

but I couldn't agree with you more on this one. For these men to act in unison in this random abduction shows they are predators, and there is not enough rehabilitation in the world that can change child predators!

It's a shame that more

It's a shame that more people don't realize that.

And you shouldn't

Howdy Scally Wagg, where have you been off plundering? Somewhere tropical I hope. Two other long timers that don't post any more are commonsensenotcommontoday and Das Weibstück. Hope all is well with you.
