14-year-old assaulted; dad comes to rescue

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Police say a 14-year-old tourist was assaulted by two men in an alley - and then the girl's dad and uncle came to her rescue.

Officials say the teen was walking from her hotel to a store when the two men approached her.

Police said one of the men got out of the car and pulled her into an alley; the other man followed.

What the duo didn't know is that the girl's father and uncle had been watching her from the hotel. The family members raced to the parking lot where they confronted the men.

The attackers got in their car and drove away, but were arrested a short time later. They were charged with sexual battery and kidnapping, and are being held in the Broward County Jail.
