Police Realize The Horrific Reason A 11-Year-Old Girl Was In A Ditch

On Monday morning, a man in a blue SUV pulled up to the curb, hitting a little girl who was on her way to school. He dragged the 11-year-old into the van, raped her and dumped her. Police believe they've caught the suspect.

The victim was found battered and bruised, but thankfully alive. She's expected to recover physically from the violent attack. The emotional and psychological trauma will be more challenging to treat, but she is lucky to be alive.

Police launched a manhunt for the culprit that lasted for hours. "He's our top priority," said Lt. Col. Gregory Sanders of the Memphis Police Department. "I mean, anytime you have anything like that happening with juveniles, kids on the way to school, kids are our prized possession."

They finally found Larry Ward, 20, and arrested him. Ward has a history of arrests that include burglary charges and driving with a suspended or revoked license.
