Teacher’s Aide Saves A Girl From A Kidnapping During School Hours
Sandra Ferguson is no ordinary teacher’s aide. She has stopped a kidnapping in progress on a fateful Friday while she was on her way to work.
“It was kind of like a superwoman power thing. I can’t believe it did that!” said Sandra Ferguson, who works at Sutter Elementary School in Antioch.
Ferguson saw an 11-year-old girl in the front seat of a vehicle with a strange looking individual. She recognized the little girl as a student at Sutter Elementary School and from the looks of the situation, the little girl seemed as though she was really scared.
“I said, ‘Sweetheart, is that your dad?’ She said, ‘No he’s a friend.’ I said, ‘No, he’s not your friend!’I put my car in front of his and blocked him in. I told her, ‘You get out of that truck right now!‘”
Ferguson used her car to block 51-year-old Santiago Salazar’s car from getting away.
Luckily, the young girl was not hurt, but Salazar was arrested and is being charged with several felonies, including attempted kidnapping.
