Man On Tape Trying To Snatch 8-Year-Old Boy From School Wrestling Competition

The photos will freak you out.

By Jaime Lutz

Police are looking for a man caught on surveillance footage trying to steal away an 8-year-old boy from an Oklahoma school’s wrestling competition. 

Footage from the Friday event shows the man picking up the boy and trying to carry him off. Luckily, the boy began kicking and screaming in response, so the man halted his abduction efforts and ran away. (Maybe all that wrestling paid off for the kid?)

Police believe the suspect is a six-foot, heavy-set Native American or Hispanic man, a local news station reported.

Police say there may be a cash reward for anyone who has information about the suspect.
