A 12-year-old Miami boy is in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center after he was abducted, raped and shot in the head by a Hispanic male.
Miami police say the Hispanic boy was abducted off the street around 2 a.m. Saturday in the Brownsville neighborhood of Northwest Miami-Dade County.
The boy was walking down a street when a man pulled up alongside him, forced him into a vehicle, sexually assaulted him, shot him and then pushed him out of the vehicle, WPLG Local News 10 reported.
A bystander heard the boy’s screams and took him to a nearby convenience store where an employee called 911.
Local News 10 talked to the Good Samaritan who asked to be identified only as Johnny. He said he was on his bicycle when he heard the boy screaming for help.
Johnny accompanied the child to the Foodland Market at NW 47th Street and 32nd Avenue, where the boy collapsed on the ground.
Johnny, who said he didn’t have a phone, noticed the boy was bleeding from a head wound. The boy told him he had been shot.
The child was wearing only a blue t-shirt, blood-stained underwear and socks.
Police are searching for a Hispanic male with long curly hair, about 30 to 40 years old, driving a black sedan.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-8477.
