On Wednesday, police in Omaha arrested Javier Rueda-Orozco, 19, after he reportedly grabbed an 8-year-old girl on her way home from school.

Around 4 p.m., Rueda-Orozco approached the girl near the intersection of 9th and Frances streets and began motioning for her to come with him, according to police.

When the girl refused and kept walking, Rueda-Orozco ran after her and grabbed onto her backpack.

The girl's mother, Christina Ingalls, told KETV:

He finally let go of her backpack. She came home screaming her head off.

"My fiancé comes outside. He goes, 'What are you doing?' He goes, 'I'm just walking with your daughter.' He goes, 'No, you need to go,'" Ingalls said.

A few hours later, Rueda-Orozco was once again spotted in the neighborhood, and the family called police.

The suspect was taken into custody after a brief struggle with officers.

Rueda-Orozco has been charged with resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia and child enticement.

He is currently being held at the Douglas County Jail on an ICE detainer.
