Thug Attempts to Kidnap Child – IMMEDIATELY Regrets It When He Runs Into THIS Pro-Athlete!

It takes a lot of nerve to try to kidnap a child in the middle of the day, in a crowded park, right in front of her parents. But that’s what one thug tried to do — and then immediately regretted it when a former pro-athlete showed up.

From Breitbart:

Former NHL tough guy Georges Laraque helped detain a 24-year-old man after he allegedly attempted to kidnap a young girl at Jeanne-Mance Park in Montreal.

The seven-year-old girl was at the park with her parents when a man approached her and started talking to her, reported CBCNews Montreal. In broad daylight, the man grabbed her and started walking away with her, but was quickly wrestled to the ground by the girl’s father.

“I ended up standing in front of him because I didn’t want him to go anywhere,” said Laraque who stands at six-foot-three and weighs 260 pounds.

A witness, Nicole Legault, at the time of the aborted abduction said that she heard a woman screaming. “She was obviously very upset,” Legault said. Moreover, she observed the mother telling those around her that the man tried to kidnap her child.

Laraque, a 14-year NHL veteran and currently a commentator for TVA Sports, played in a celebrity baseball game at a nearby field when he heard screams and ran over to investigate.

Not known as a pacifist, Laraque, who spent 1,126 minutes in the penalty box, said, “I just wanted to make sure that if he got up that I was going to tackle him right away.”

There are plenty of people who would look the other way when someone is in need, but he didn’t. Thank goodness for good Samaritans like him!
