    They say that in this situation if someone grabs you while on a bike…..hold onto the bike, it's hard to drag someone anywhere with a bulky bicycle attached.

    She should have hit him with the bike. Glad the child made it. That is 1 less child someone has to bury. God Bless You.

    Maybe a description including race would help. It's hard to tell from the sketch. I'm so glad this little girl is o.k. Please find this man & destroy him.

    Sounds exactly like an abduction and rape of a little girl in PBC florida a few weeks ago. Close in the description, too.
