Top 7 Surveillance Videos of the Week: Girl Credits ‘Law & Order’ in Helping Catch Abductor

Other top surveillance videos of the week include a home “distraction scam,” falling construction beams and more.

In this week’s Top Surveillance Videos…

There has been a long-time debate about whether or not kids emulate what they see on TV. However, that’s usually in regards to content that might be inappropriate in one way or another.

“Law & Order: SVU” might not be one of the first shows that you let your kid watch, but this surveillance video may make you reconsider.

Video footage from Florida shows an 11-year-old fight off a suspected abductor armed with a knife. During the alleged kidnapping attempt, the girl smudges the blue slime she was playing with on the suspect’s arm.

Why? She says she learned on “Law & Order: SVU” that you should try to leave some type of evidence on a suspect so police have an easy time identifying them. I think we have a future crime investigator on our hands.

Also this week…

Burglars will use a whole host of different schemes in order to get into someone’s home. One example recently captured on a home security camera is the “distraction scam.”

A man knocks on the door and when the homeowner comes out, he says he is a contractor working on a neighbor’s home. He makes the homeowner come outside to look at a piece of the property far from his house.

Another man with a walkie-talkie can then be seen entering the home. Fortunately, another person was home and asked him to leave. That suspect then radios his partner and they flee the scene.

Make sure to check out the rest of this week’s top surveillance videos, which include a shooting on a crowded street, a fake Amazon driver and more.
