Philip Garcia the paedophile who was thwarted by a neighbour as he tried to drag six-year-old girl into van - 17th Aug 2011

This is the twisted paedophile who almost succeeded in abducting a 12-year-old girl from a trailer park.

Sick Philip Garcia, 29, snatched the girl from the park in Alberquerque, New Mexico and bundled her into the back of his van.

He was only stopped after an heroic neighbour jumped into his pick-up truck and chased him through the streets until he crashed the van into a telephone pole.

Mechanic Antonio Diaz Chacon, 24, tailed Garcia through a maze of residential streets until he smashed into the pole and fled on foot.

Diaz Chacon grabbed the girl and took her home. Garcia then returned to his wrecked van and took off but was later captured by police, authorities said.

Inside the impounded van were tostadas, a glove, a Leatherman tool, a black satchel, orange strapping similar to the strap found hidden under the rock, police said. Read More
