The Wright siblings were playing at a park one day in Sprague, Washington – when suddenly a stranger walked up and grabbed 22-month-old Owen. This crime was especially unusual in Sprague as it only has a population of 500. Even more unusual is what happens after the kidnapper grabbed the little boy from his stroller.
In this shocking video, we can see the kidnapper hurriedly shuffling down a sidewalk with the toddler in his hands. The footage was captured by a grocery store security camera, and after the kidnapper moves out of frame we see Owen’s 8-year-old sister, Alicia, is in hot pursuit of the kidnapper. She’s not about to let this stranger take her baby brother. A few seconds later, her 10-year-old brother, Brendan is also racing after the kidnapper with stroller still in hand.
Being chased by Owen’s siblings apparently spooked the kidnapper, because he suddenly heads for a vacant lot. Then something unexpected happens. The brave children are being praised for their quick thinking and for doing the “Wright” thing. The video of the courageous kids went viral and has currently been seen by over seven million people. Watch it below to see how the kidnapper reacts when he realizes he’s being chased!
