Teen girl escapes kidnapping attempt

LANCASTER, Calif. Investigators say the teen was walking alone on Tuesday night on Challenger Way, when the suspects approached her in their vehicle.

They shined a spotlight on her as she tried to get away, and one of the men got out of the vehicle and grabbed her by the arm.

She managed to escape and ran to a nearby church for help.

The teen's mother says she is thankful that someone in the church opened the door.

"I feel strongly in my heart that they are deliverance from God. Without them I would not probably have my child right now," Brandie said.

Detectives say both suspects face attempted kidnapping charges.
