11-year-old girl uses 'Law & Order' trick to help capture would-be kidnapper


It seems there’s more to yesterday’s viral video of the 11-year old girl who fought off her would-be kidnapper at a bus stop in Florida.

Aside from the little girl’s impressively quick duck-out escape, in the mere seconds of the whole event, she had the wherewithal to tag the goon with a trick she learned from watching her favorite show, “Law & Order: SVU.”

As reported by Today, while waiting for her bus, the girl bided her time making a mixture of homemade slime and blue paint. While fighting him off, she smeared some of the goop on the man, Jared Paul Stanga, which made him even easier to identify when the cops tracked him down.

"I knew that that might be better evidence if the cops do find him," the girl, Alyssa, told Today.

The 30-year old attacker has been charged with attempted kidnapping of a child under 13 and aggravated assault and battery, and is being held on just over $1.5 million bond.

Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons said at a news conference Wednesday, "The suspect, when we caught him, had blue slime all over his own arms… I'm not so sure if she actually comprehends what could have happened. She fought like a trooper."

"I just feel proud of myself," the girl told Today on Thursday.
