A man is behind bars after attempting to kidnap middle school girls last night after a dance in Millington.

The unidentified 22-year-old allegedly approached four females after they left a Speedway gas station on State Road. According to reports, the creeper followed the girls across the street and attempted to grab one of the girls. The other girls immediately started fighting him off by kicking him and throwing hot coffee on him. He then tried to grab another one of the girls. The group continued to kick him until the girl was let go. Can you imagine?

The girls escaped to a nearby restaurant and the unidentified man was eventually picked up by police while walking north on M-15. As you can imagine the four girls are understandably shaken up, but luckily unharmed and most important - they are safe.
