A Chicago father bravely stood up to a stranger who tried to abduct his toddler daughter from their family outing at Daley Plaza in the center of the city on August 25.
The man grabbed Myla Davis-Green, 2, shouting ‘this is my daughter, Goldilocks,’ and attempted to run off with her, hitting Kelly Davis in the face and trying to wrestle him away from his daughters.
Mr Davis, 31, managed to protect his daughters and chase the man, identified as James Gates, 55, through Chicago’s streets for half an hour until he was arrested and Mr Davis could be sure his daughters were safe.
Mr Davis, who is from Zion, Illinois, said he often takes his girls to the Picasso statue in Daley Plaza during the evenings for a family outing.
The girls like to slide on the bottom of the statue and play with other children in their ‘nighttime adventures’.
