(Scroll down for video) Antoinette Robinson saved her daughter from her abductor by hitting him over the head with a piece of 2x4 wood.

It was 6:30 PM when Mrs. Robinson was inside her house at the 16900 block of SE Lafayette Street, while her daughter was playing outside.

She suddenly heard her daughter screaming "mommy." She looked out the window and saw a young man holding her daughter by the waist with one hand while with his other hand he was covering her mouth, dragging her into the nearby bushes.

The mother ran outside, grabbed a piece of wood and ran after the abductor. She hit him over his head with the piece of wood. The abductor then let the young girl go as he ran away, but the brave mom ran after him.

When neighbors heard the commotion, they ran outside to help catch the man.

They caught him and held him down until the police arrived. While waiting for police to arrive, Mrs. Robinson is seen kicking the suspect in the head once she caught up with him.

"I'm not going to lie, I just went over there and I stomped him in his face and mouth," Robinson said.

Police arrested 17-year-old Joel Miranda Jr. and charged him with kidnapping and aggravated harassment. He will be charged as an adult.
