We are SHOOK about all of this!! 

Yes, we need to emphasize that the little girl in the video is safe and with her family.

We should also note that the man in the video--the suspect--was caught and is in custody. The man in the video was armed with a knife and according to authorities, the mother of that girl was home at the time, taking care of an infant in the home, and had no idea that intruder was present.

  • Rape
  • Kidnapping in the second degree
  • Battery with intent to commit a serious felony
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Assault or battery upon certain personnel
