HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police have arrested a suspect in the abduction of a 6-year-old girl who escaped after going into a store and telling a customer that she was kidnapped.
Police say a 23-year-old man was captured early Thursday. Kidnapping charges are pending.
Investigators say the girl did not appear harmed during the hour-long abduction Wednesday afternoon.
Police say the girl and her mother drove into an apartment complex garage and the woman unloaded the vehicle. The girl was standing nearby when a man forced her into his SUV and drove away.
Houston police say the man took the girl to a Target store. She went into the bathroom and told a customer about being abducted.
The man fled. Some of his relatives saw news reports about the kidnapping and contacted police.
