KFDM investigates young girl kidnapped from Port Arthur apartment complex

Port Arthur Police say a young girl was kidnapped from her apartment complex at Rampart Apartments off Gulfway.

She's safe tonight and police confirm they've questioned two persons of interest.

A 6-year-old says she and her brother were playing Sunday when her brother hit her. She ran away from him outside and sat on a step.

That's when she says she saw a woman sitting in a tree, jump down and grab her. She tried running back up the stairs but says the woman got her in time, then dragged her around a corner just before the mother looked out to see what was going on.

The girl told police she was placed in a car and another little girl was also inside. A man was driving.

She says they parked at a house and the suspects apparently had duct tape and scissors.

Just a few minutes later though, the girl taken from Rampart Apartments was dropped off near the old Market Basket on Stadium Drive.

A homeless woman found the girl and was able to get help.

The mom is obviously very thankful to have her daughter back.
