San Diego, CA— San Diego police have arrested a man for attacking a four year old girl outside an apartment complex on the 4300 block of 50th St.
Witnesses say the child’s father was dropping her off at her grandmother’s house when a complete stranger attacked the child from behind.
A neighbor said that he heard someone yelling for help and came outside. He saw the father and another man trying to fight off the attacker.
“He came at me, and it seemed like he was going for someone, and that someone was a child,” he said, “so I had no other recourse, I hit him once he went down. He bit my leg. He got up, and he started coming after me.”
Very very vicious, he had a very crazy look,” Robert said. “He wasn’t saying anything, he was grunting like a feral animal. He was exceptionally strong. He just wouldn’t quit, even when the police got here, he was very very strong.”
Police arrested the suspect.
Robert recalled seeing red marks around the little girl’s neck but said she was okay though visibly shaken.
She is home with her parents
