Florida girl escaping attacker caught on tape

February 14, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A quick thinking Florida girl escapes her attacker, and it's all caught on surveillance tape.

The video shows the girl walking home from her school in Bradenton. The man chases her down, and grabs her from behind.

Investigators say he carried her to a wooded area to rape her, but he ran after she said people were nearby and watching.

Deputies think the same man is responsible for two other attacks on teenage girls. One managed to get away, but the other did not.

Children are being warned to stick together and be alert until the predator is caught.
