Dishal Sooku became a hero overnight. Sooku prevented the kidnapping of a 4-year-old on the West Rand.
In the video widely spread on social media, Sooku can be seen fighting off a criminal that tried to abduct the 4-year-old.
A 24-year-old man appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrate’s Court on Friday after he allegedly tried to grab a young child at a shopping center in Florida on Gauteng’s West Rand the day before.
Gauteng police spokesperson Kay Makhubela said the “unknown man grabbed the child by the neck, as if he wanted to take her”.
Sooku intervened quickly to bring the man under control and he was arrested.
