Tampa, FL - Sheriff's detectives have arrested Tyrone "Nugget'' Rogers for the abduction of a middle school student that occurred Wednesday morning.
The 12-year-old girl was at her bus stop around 8:25 a.m. when a man drove up in a gray sedan and asked the girl if she wanted a ride.
The girl declined, and the man got out of his car and displayed a handgun tucked into his waistband. The suspect shoved the girl with his elbow and forced her into the vehicle.
The suspect drove to a parking lot where he stopped to make a cell phone call. The girl managed to escape from the vehicle and ran to a nearby gas station, where a citizen drove her to her school.
The girl alerted school officials about what happened, and deputies arrived on scene. The girl identified the suspect from a photo pack and accurately described a tattoo the suspect has on his neck.
Rogers is charged with kidnapping with a firearm and battery.
And he looks so HAPPY!
