A Florida woman helped rescue two daughters from a suspected kidnapper after going to a church with the victims.

Suspect Identified

David Daniels of Brandon, Fla. was arrested on two counts of child molestation and two counts of false imprisonment related to an attempted child abduction. Daniels is still in jail and has $104,000 on bail, according to arrest records as of Wednesday night.

Deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said, according to local station , that Daniels met the two children near Cherry’s Bar and Grill in FishHawk’s park square Sunday and told them he would walk them home.

One devotee recalled breaking up the alleged possible kidnapping, telling the outlet, “I saw two kids on their bikes and a grown man behind them.”

At the time, the woman, who did not want to be publicly identified or receive “any credit whatsoever,” stood outside a church and said she saw Daniels hit one of the children on the head. He is also said to have had a victim with a headache, he told police.

“One of the little girls said, ‘Please help me, that’s not my dad,'” the woman told. “He spoke over her, right behind her, put his arm around her neck and said something into her ear , and said, “We just moved here, we just want to see how we can help you do what you do.

The witness said that although she suspected Daniels was lying, she invited him to the church so she could alert the police.

“I struck up a conversation with him,” she recalls. “I said, ‘Oh that’s fine, where did you move from here? He said, “Oh, I’m not sure.” ”

Hillsborough County Police then reached downtown Daniels and arrested him.

“He didn’t know those kids, and those kids certainly didn’t know him,” Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Jessica Lang told WFLA, adding that Daniels followed the victims as they exited a restaurant. “At this point he follows them out of the restaurant and starts hitting one of the kids on the head and continues to follow them.”

Lang said the girls rode their bikes to the church, where Daniels chased them as they entered.

“Fortunately, these kids stuck together and rode their bikes to a nearby church and asked an adult for help,” Lang said.

He continued, “The members of this church have really worked to protect the children who are not theirs. They saw something was wrong and they saved these children.”
