This is just one of those awesome stories you have a hard time believing are true. Of course, the beginning of the story is quite depressing — a Pennsylvania man kidnapped a little girl from her front yard. Luckily, two 15-year-old boys on their bikes helped search for the girl and found her in the front seat of an old man’s car. They chased after the car and apparently that resulted in the man letting the girl out of the car.

“As soon as the guy noticed we were chasing him, he stopped at the end of the hill and let her out,” Temar Boggs, 15, told local news.

Sarah Laskow of Grist adds: “The girl, Jocelyn Rojas, was reunited with her family and taken to the hospital to be checked out. The 73-year-old guy who’s been charged with the abduction “served time for abducting and raping another 5-year-old girl in 1989,” CBS reports.”
