  • Heroes! Teens on bikes rescue girl from kidnapping

    Several teenagers are now being called heroes(which they area) for rescuing a young girl, age 5, from an apparent kidnapping. Upon seeing reports of the kidnapping, the teenagers formulated a plan to search for the missing girl and got on their bikes. Upon seeing the vehicle avoid a police road block and noticing a little girl fitting a description of the little girl, they gave chase. After about 15 minutes of giving chase, the assailant released the girl and fled in his vehicle.

    I wish I could shake the hand of these heroes. These guys deserve a key to the city. Heroes, just simple heroes going above and beyond. True heroes in my book in a world gone crazy and mad.

    Heroes! Teens on bikes rescue girl from kidnap

    Two teenagers are being hailed as heroes for hopping on their bicycles last week, chasing down a kidnapper and rescuing an abducted, five-year-old girl.

    Young Jocelyn Rojas of Lancaster Township, Pa., had been playing in her front yard, when an unknown assailant snatched her and threw her in his car. Her mother reported the girl’s disappearance within minutes.

    “It’s something you don’t wish on anybody,” Roja’s grandmother, Tracey Clay, told WHTM-TV in Harrisburg. “Horrible, horrible thoughts flashed through my mind.”

    But nearby, 15-year-old Temar Boggs, who didn’t know the girl but who had seen television reports on the kidnapping and police patrolling his neighborhood, determined to do something. He gathered together six of his friends.

    “We got all of our friends to go look for her,” Boggs told Lancaster Online. “We made our own little search party.”

    Boggs and his friend Chris Garcia rode their bicycles, combing the neighborhood, when they witnessed a maroon sedan evade some policemen by turning down a side street in haste. In the passenger seat, the Boggs saw a little girl matching Rojas’ description.

    Though only on bicycles, the boys gave chase through the winding roads of the subdivision.

    Adrenaline and legs pumping, the teens pursued the car for nearly 15 minutes.

    “If he wasn’t gonna stop, I was probably gonna jump on the car,” said Boggs afterward.

    But it wouldn’t come to that.

    “As soon as the guy started noticing that we were chasing him, he stopped at the end of the hill,” Boggs told WHTM. “[He] let her out, and she ran to me and said that she needed her mom.”

    Boggs took Rojas to police, WHTM reports, and she got her request: Mom was on her way.

    “He’s our hero. There’s no words to say,” said the girl’s grandmother. “I’m so grateful.”

    Boggs, however, doesn’t count himself as a hero.

    “I’m just a normal person who did a thing that anybody else would do,” he told Lancaster Online. “It was a blessing for me to make that happen.”

    His mother, Tamika Boggs, said she’s proud of her son.

    “You just hope you raise your child the right way,” she said. “He’s learning what I tell him, to help others.”
