LA Train Passengers Foil Sex Offender James Alfred Burnett’s Attempt To Kidnap Girl (Video)

Most of the time people would rather walk on by than help somebody in need.

But one group of train passengers decided to take action on seeing an attempted kidnapping playing out before them.

Up to ten commuters, at an MTA Avalon station in south Los Angeles, fought off registered sex offender, James Alfred Burnett, when he allegedly tried to grab a teenage girl on Thursday.

‘He had grabbed her in a bear hug and he was dragging her off,’ Steve Whitmore, a sheriff’s department spokesman, told ABC News.

‘This group of passengers, could be up to 10 people, actually prevented this from occurring.

‘They tackled him and they brought him to the ground.’

The girl, who was shaken but unharmed, was then able to break free and and run away while the alleged attacker boarded a passing train.

Burnett, 46, was later arrested at another station. The accused has a prior conviction for rape, according to California’s sex offender registry.
