A Michigan man who tried to kidnap an 11-year-old girl wasn’t prepared for the response he got: a hot coffee and cold slurpee attack. A group of four girls between the ages of 11 and 14 were walking away from a convenience store in Millington when they noticed a suspicious guy following them.
The girls crossed the street, the man did too. Then he grabbed the 11-year-old, telling her, “You’re coming with me,” Millington Police Department Chief Jason Oliver reports. But the Chief says the girls sprang into action, turned around and started punching the guy, throwing their hot coffee and icy Slurpees at him, using whatever they had to fight him off.
The man, now identified as 22-year-old Bruce Hipkins, then tried to grab another girl by the hair, but the group continued to assault him and he eventually ran away. The girls ran to a hotel to call 911 and Hipkins was picked up and arrested minutes later. He’s now serving time, facing four felonies and a misdemeanor and in his mug shot, his shirt has a big coffee stain.
