Cops Release Video Of 8-Year-Old Being Rescued After Getting Kidnapped In Front Of Mom
Cops have released the shocking footage of the May 18 kidnapping incident where an eight-year-old girl has snatched off a Texas street as her mom desperately begged out for help.
In the disturbing footage, you can see Michael Webb, 51, grabbing the young girl as she was casually walking in Fort Worth. Her mother can be heard crying out for help: “Help me, help me, please. My daughter just got kidnapped.” The new video also shows the moment when Webb, who was sentenced to life in prison last Thursday, was arrested at gunpoint seven hours later.
In hotel security footage armed officers surround Webb’s door and batter it down before a naked Webb emerges with his arms in the air. The little girl was hidden in a laundry basket before being carried to safety.
Webb eventually admitted to the FBI that he did commit the crime. He also told cops that he had threatened to hurt her family if she spoke out.
“I told her if she said anything, that I would do something to her parents, and if I was in jail, I would have my friends to do it.”
U.S. Attorney Nealy Cox said of Webb’s sentence:
“We believe that justice has been served in this case, and we are thankful for and agree with the judge’s decision to sentence him to life in prison.”
