A 6-year-old girl who was kidnapped outside of her Houston, Texas home was rescued after she asked for help in a store bathroom.

Authorities say 23-year-old Joaquin Ramos abducted Kelly Tellez while her mother was unloading groceries, then took her to Target because he had to use the restroom. He told her to go use the bathroom as well. Once inside the restroom, she asked a woman for help.
