A 9-year-old girl was kidnapped as she walked home from a Virginia bus stop, and it took SWAT teams six hours to end a standoff with the suspect, according to a report.
Police say the man then grabbed the child, forced her into the passenger seat of his car and closed the door, according to WAVY.
On the walk back around to the driver’s seat, the girl opened her door and ran home, WAVY reported.
An investigation led police to Steven Williams, 34, and police went to arrest him, according to WAVY.
The SWAT team tried to call Williams to come outside of his home around 9 p.m. that same night, WAVY reported. Officers said Williams barricaded himself inside the home and refused to leave.
The team sent a drone into the home while the cops used a robot to open doors to search for Williams, WAVY reported.
Tear gas was thrown into the residence but was unsuccessful in getting Williams to leave, according to WAVY.
A K-9 was sent into the home and found Williams. He was then arrested about six hours after the standoff started, according to WAVY.
Williams was taken into custody and charged with abduction, WAVY reported. He is being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
