    The mother got out of car and ran toward Bauturera, who released the girl and ran off, the report said. She tried to follow him but lost track of him, but he was later arrested, the report said.

    "I was nervous so I just stood still and then my mom told me to go inside," the girl told NBC 6 Monday. "She came out of the car, she heard me calling my mom because this guy was screaming and then he grabbed me and then he started to say 'come on' then he just let go and my mom started chasing him."

    "I’m, 'don’t touch my kid.' Like kids are off limits. People want to do stuff to themselves, that’s fine. But leave the kids alone," mom Barbie Borges said. "That was my thing so I chased him, 'who do you think you are to put your hands on my child?'"

    Bauturera appeared in court Monday where he was ordered held on $150,000 bond. He was appointed a public defender.
