Teen Mouths "Help Me" To Police, They Take Immediate Action

Deputy Ryan Hooks and Sgt. Paula Pendleton were finishing up their patrol in Waltono County, Florida.

They walked by a pavilion known for attracting underage drinkers. That's when they saw a girl sitting on a man's lap mouthing the words "Help me." She also whispered, "Help me, he won't let me go."

The officers ordered Fidel Mandujano Jr., who was holding the girl’s waist, to release her. The girl was scared, shaking and teary-eyed.

The teen later told authorities she had gotten separated from her friend and decided to go home. When she reached the beach access area, Mandujano allegedly tried to kiss her and wouldn’t let her leave. He then pulled her onto the bench and kept her there. The teen also said he had inappropriately touched her inside her clothes and only stopped when Hooks and Pendleton arrived.

After questioning, Mandujano was arrested for false imprisonment and sexual battery. He is being held at Walton County Jail.
