A Bus Driver Noticed Something Wrong With A Passenger And Child. His Clever Plan Saved The Day
June 16, 2015
About an hour after a three year-old boy was reportedly kidnapped at a library just outside of San Francisco, Tim Watson, a Valley Transportation Authority bus driver, noticed a man and boy on his bus who matched the description of the suspect and child.
Watson said the boy was crying, so he devised a clever plan.
Instead of confronting the suspect directly, Watson began asking passengers about a missing green backpack. He then pulled over and pretended to look for the lost bag so he could contact police.
When the bus arrived at the police station, officers were waiting.
An officer pried the child away from the 23 year-old kidnapper after a brief struggle. The man was detained and taken into custody.
The child didn't appear to have any injuries, police said.
Watson, a father of two, said he just followed his paternal instincts. "I feel I did what any father would do."
