A moment of inattention by a mother led a man to kidnap his daughter at the age of four in Ukraine. The situation happened on Monday night at a service station in Boryspil, about 20 kilometers from Kiev.
In the images recorded by a surveillance camera at the service station, a man is seen standing next to the girl while the mother was paying for the fuel.
Inside the car was the father, who was unaware of the situation.
The individual takes the girl and places her in the back seat of a white car, leaving seconds later without causing an alarm.
The video posted by the Ukrainian Interior Ministry on social media led to a manhunt by police authorities.
He was captured less than two hours after the crime, at the airport that serves the Ukrainian capital.
The child was handed over to the parents, apparently without any visible injuries or injuries.
The 29-year-old confessed to the police that he had kidnapped the child for criminal purposes.
He is charged with three crimes, including rape, and faces up to 15 years in prison.
