Police make arrest in St. Paul child abduction
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Police have arrested a man suspected of abducting a 7-year-old St. Paul girl from a Laundromat by promising to show her a puppy.
KSTP-TV reports the 48-year-old man was found hiding under his car in his Spring Lake Park garage.
The girl was found in Spring Lake Park about two hours after she was taken, after police and the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension issued an Amber Alert in the Twin Cities Sunday night.
Police say the girl was found alone in a park by "a concerned citizen." Police spokesman Andy Skoogman says she was examined by doctors and reunited with her family.
"This little girl was incredibly brave and resilient," St. Paul Police Thomas Smith said. "The information she provided our investigators, along with information from witnesses, was instrumental in the apprehension of this man."
