A security guard helped a teenage girl get away from a man who grabbed her while she was walking home from school in Phoenix last week.
The 16-year-old told police that she decided to stop by the Subway at Seventh Avenue and Camelback Road on her way home April 5 when a stranger approached her in the parking lot.
He reportedly blocked her way and grabbed her by the hand, according to court documents.
She told police that she tried to get away from him but he continued to grab onto her arms and hands.
Caleb Pariga was patrolling the parking lot when he heard the girl screaming for help. He ran over and got her away from the man. He then called police.
The suspect was identified as Fitzgerald Tenijieth, 46. He was charged with assault and unlawful imprisonment.
