On a sunny Sunday afternoon in Sprague, Washington three siblings and a couple of teens experienced the scariest day of their lives. The siblings, 10-year-old Brenden, 8-year-old Delicia, and 22-month-old Owen Wright were playing unsupervised in a park next to their babysitters home when a man with a sinister plan approached them.

Surveillance footage from a nearby grocery story captured the harrowing moments that followed. Out of nowhere, a man snatched up the youngest of the Wright siblings and began to flee toward a nearby neighborhood. It was then that Owen Wright’s big sister decided that she would not let ANYONE hurt her little brother.
The 8-yr-old ran full speed after the kidnapper screaming loud as her lungs would let her, telling everyone around that something terrible was happening.
“This little girl came running around the corner screaming her head off,”witness Dorothy Giddings said.
Delicia’s screams alerted two teenage boys who immediately joined in hot pursuit of the criminal. The suspect eventually set little Owen to the ground in an empty parking lot before continuing to flee.
If it wasn’t for the actions of Delicia, Brenden and the two teenage strangers, who knows what would have become of Owen.
Check out the chilling CCTV footage in the video below. Though the suspect still remains at large, Owen is safe and sound.
