Video shows Florida mom fighting back after man tries to abduct girl

Attempted abduction unfolds at Dollar General in Citrus County

A mother was forced to fight back after a man tried to abduct her child in front of her at a Dollar General store in Citrus County.

Surveillance video shows a man leave his shopping cart, walk to the next aisle and grab the 13-year-old girl before trying to drag her away.

The girl's mom then chases after them. An off-duty sheriff's deputy was outside of the store, heard the screaming and rushed in to make the save.

The suspect, identified as Craig Bonello, is facing multiple charges. It's not clear why he went after the girl.
