One Florida man was arrested on Tuesday after trying to kidnap an 11-year-old girl at a Florida bus station.
Jared Stanga, 30, was the arrested criminal charged with the attempted kidnapping of a child under 13, aggravated assault, and battery. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office had a press conference and shared these details.

Moreover, there is a surveillance recording so everyone can see the incident. The suspect is getting out of the vehicle and runs towards the girl. The brave young girl managed to wrestle her way out of the kidnapper as he attempted to carry her to the van.
Then, the girl started running toward her home while Stanga got into his car and left the crime scene. The girl’s parents reported the incident to the police.
“As you could see in this video. A Hispanic male exits the vehicle reportedly armed with a knife,” the Sheriff wrote in his Facebook post with the video. “The suspect then grabs the little girl, and a struggle ensues. She was able to fight and break free from the suspects’ grip. She is safe and with family.”
Stanga was arrested without incident on Tuesday by law enforcement officials at 5 pm. But, the detectives have tied him to the attempting kidnapping.
Escambia County Sheriff Chip. W. Simmons, in his press conference, said that the girl was playing with a blue slime. And when they arrested the suspect, he had leftovers from the slime.
Also, the suspect was spotted on a different surveillance camera in a different zone, wearing the same clothes and a blue slime on his arm.
“You saw the blue goo, the slime, that’s on the suspect that the victim had. You’re not kidding anyone,” the Sheriff said. “We know you’re an animal, and we also know you’re under arrest.”
Also, the kidnapper had an “extensive criminal history,” and sexual offenses against children weren’t an exclusion.
According to Simmons, this wasn’t the first time this man tried to kidnap the girl. Two weeks before the attack, the man approached the girl and made her feel uncomfortable. The girl reported that to the school, principal, and parents, but the police didn’t know about the encounter.
“I cannot help to think that this could have ended very differently. Had this 11-year-old victim not thought to fight, and to fight, and to just never give up. Then this could have ended terribly,” the Sheriff added. “Why else do you think that this man stopped his van and tried to pick her up and take her into that van? It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what his intentions were.”
