As the Los Angeles Times earlier reported, a man tried to abduct a 10-year-old girl off a south Philadelphia sidewalk on Tuesday as she was walking home from a nearby store with her 2-year-old brother. The incident was caught by a surveillance camera. The man approached the girl from behind and put his hand over her mouth, and then tried to cart her off. The girl's little brother screamed -- louder than his sister had ever heard him -- the Associated Press reported from a Thursday news conference. The girl credited her brother with stopping the attack.
