Ringtone Helps Girl Identify Kidnapper

`A Pierce County man is in jail for a botched attempt at kidnapping a young girl. It happened March 8th on a rural road near Yelm.

According to court documents, a 12-year-old girl was walking home after getting off the school bus when a man wearing a camouflage mask grabbed her from behind and tied a towel around her head to keep the girl from seeing his face. [..]

The blindfolded victim apparently recognized the phone’s unique ringtone and said, “Jimmy you are scaring me. If itís you Jimmy, stop it.”

The startled attacker ran off, leaving the girl bound and alone in the woods. She managed to free herself and ran home where she reported the attack to her dad, who called police.’
