Mom Chases Down Child Abductor; Girl Safe

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Albuquerque police say a mother who saw her 5-year-old being abducted chased the suspect down and crashed her vehicle into his car, triggering a manhunt.
    
Police say the incident unfolded Wednesday evening when the woman saw her child being forced into a car in Albuquerque's North Valley. She jumped into her vehicle and gave chase for about seven miles, unaware the man had pushed the girl out of the car shortly after grabbing her. The girl was not injured.
    
The mother followed the suspect and finally rammed into his car near an intersection. He fled on foot.
    
Police are still searching for the man, who they say matches the description of a suspect who sexually assaulted and returned a girl in the same neighborhood last week.
