A father’s awareness and quick action prevented his son from being abducted at North Avenue Beach this 4th of July.
This father wasn’t focused on an I-Pad or a smart phone; he was playing with his nieces and nephews just before his encounter with a parent’s worst nightmare.
Moments after the tugging stopped, Uvalle turned around and saw a stranger holding his boy up, the man’s hands under Isaiah’s arms.
It didn’t take long for the suspect to grab Armando Uvalle’s son, and attempt to walk off with him. He had probably been watching the family for a while before he decided to act.
