Young Woman Saved When Routine Patrol Officers Happen To Pass By

A young woman was out with friends in Seaside, Florida when the unthinkable happened. After she had separated from her group, a man who was hitting on her grabbed her and pulled her down on his lap. The girl struggled, but by a stroke of luck or divine intervention, two police officers on a routine patrol happen to pass. The girl was able to get their attention by mouthing 'help me.'

The one unnamed woman had lost track of her friends and was searching for them when she ran into Fidel Mandujano, Jr. The man grabbed her and tried to kiss her. The victim struggled and refused, but Mandujano just pulled her down on his lap on a bench and held her tightly.

The woman tried to break free so she could run away, but Mandujano held her in a vice-like grip. Much to her horror, her captor began touching her under her clothes and fondling her.

Then, it was as if the victim’s guardian angel had been on the job and went for help. The woman then noticed that two police officers were walking by. Deputy Ryan Hook and Sergeant Paula Pendleton spotted the two, and the victim mouthed 'help me' to them. They immediately interceded.

The young woman, the officers could tell, looked quite shaken and her eyes were full of tears. Mandujano told them nothing was wrong and that they didn’t need help. Seeing the terrified look on her face, they ordered Mandujano to let the girl go.

The woman told deputies that she didn't know Mandujano and had tried to leave, but he forcibly held her down. Mandujano was arrested and charged with sexual assault and false imprisonment. Eventually, the sexual assault charge was changed to sexual battery.
