Neighbors rescue girl from kidnapper

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (WFLX) - An alert and quick-thinking neighbor rescues a little girl from a kidnapper in New Mexico.

A man snatched the 6-year-old girl from a mobile home park in Albuquerque shoving her into a van.

Neighbors witnessed the abduction, and one hopped in his truck to follow. His wife called 9-1-1 as did the girl's terrified sister.

The kidnapper, identified by police as Phillip Garcia, crashed the van, and the neighbor rescued the little girl. "We heard a man going, 'Hey, hey, let her go'".

So we turned around, we were about to leave, we were on the trucks. So the man came running to us, and he said, 'They stole our little girl.'"

The little girl is okay. Garcia is charged with kidnapping and child abuse.
