Police have released footage of the moment a man tried to kidnap a 13-year-old girl in the middle of a supermarket.
The incident was caught on CCTV in the Dollar General Store on Trucks Avenue in Inverness, Hernando.
Investigators say Craig Bonello, 30, grabbed a 13-year-old girl, dragged her down the aisles and then ran after the girl’s mother fought for her daughter.
Bonello can be seen pushing a trolley before looking around and then going straight for the young girl, grabbing her and trying to drag her out of the shop.
Off-duty policeman Jonathan Behnen was outside the shop and blocked Bonello’s car before arresting him.
Citrus County deputies took Bonello into custody and confirmed he he faces charges of child abuse and kidnapping.
