TERRIFYING video captured moment a man hopped out of an SUV and kidnapped a nine-year-old girl before sexually assaulting her.
Surveillance footage caught Luis Martinez-Romero as he climbed out of the vehicle and ran up on the girl from behind while she was walking home in Providence, Rhode Island.
The 34-year-old – who was wearing a face mask – then snatches the girl and carried her back to his car before speeding off, CCTV footage obtained by WBZ-TV shows.
The girl was returned about an hour later to the area where she was abducted, police told the news station.
Martinez-Romero, of Cranston, was arrested late Tuesday night and was charged with kidnapping of a minor and sexual assault, according to the outlet.
He was expected to appear in court on Wednesday, WPRI reported.
