Finally Camera Phone Used for the Right Reasons … 11 Year Old Girl Snapped Photo of Abductor Mohammed Al Hamdani


Quick thinking by an 11 year old girl takes a bite out of potential child crime.

There have been so many stories of how teenager have been irresponsible in the use of their camera cell phones in sending inappropriate pics to others over the internet. Finally, a cell phone with picture capability is used for the right reasons and has potentially taken a predator off the streets.

An 11-year-old girl took a photo of a man, Mohammed Al Hamdani, with her cell phone who was allegedly trying to abduct her at Bible Park in southeast Denver, CO. The 11 year old girl took the picture of her potential abductor approached her at the park and asked her to get in his car. 39 year old Mohammed Al Hamdani has since been taken into custody and arrested.

The 11-year-old girl told police a man approached her at the park and asked her to get in his car.

She said no, snapped a picture of the man with her cell phone and ran away from him, according to the TV station.

The girl turned the cell phone image over to police, who distributed the man’s photo to the public.

UPDATE I: Girl’s phone photo leads to arrest

UPDATE II: Hearing set in child predator case
Use of camera by girl, 11, raises safety concerns 

Some are questioning the child’s tactics of taking the picture first and not running away immediately. Personally, for as fast as one can take a cell phone photo, take the picture first and run. The result of this girls quick actions is that a child predator is off the streets. This 11 year old didn’t just save herself, she saved countless potential victims. She should be praised.

While some officials have lauded the girl’s pluck and quick thinking in the Saturday incident, others have questioned whether her impromptu photography was the right tactic to take.

“It’s way better to run – you don’t stop to take a picture,” said Peggy Rudden, executive director of the regional office of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), which works with abused and neglected children.

“You scream and make as much racket as you can,” added Rudden. “But mostly you run as fast as you can.”

      I agree, bless her little heart for thinking so fast. I wish this could happen to all of the sick SOB’s. This situation makes me change my mind regarding kids having cell phones at a young age.

      perhaps if the appropriate punishment were to be put into action we could send a message BUT….ohhhhh
      you watch they will let this CREEP off with a 60 day sentence………if that

      how about a 60 day sentence after a bullet put in him

      that would take care of the problem
