Teen avoids abduction, chases down suspect

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON, TX -

  A 17-year-old in Texas who avoided abduction managed to chase down the suspect with the help of strangers.

The incident happened Thursday morning while the victim says she was walking to school. 

There, in broad daylight, she says a man pulled up in a truck and tried to take her.

"He grabbed my arm, actually, telling me to get into the truck," the victim said.

She says she pulled back and was able to get away, just as another teen and her mom were pulling up.

She got into their car, and they took off, following the man's truck for several blocks.

They recorded the chase, which eventually ended when the man crashed into a ditch. 

Police arrived and arrested Daniel Zapata, who already has a long rap sheet.
