One shudders to think what would happen if you had to wrestle someone -- a registered sex-offender -- who was trying to kidnap your two year old child. That's the case for father Armando Uvalle, who fought off convicted child molester Tyrone Hill in the middle of a busy Chicago beach.
The Daily Mail reports:
'The father had to fight to get the child out of his hands I think the father, like most fathers, had as much strength as he needed at the time.'
Hill was charged with one count of attempted aggravated kidnapping of a child under 13 and one count of unlawful restraint.
In 1997 he was convicted of two counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault of a child. His victims were seven-years-old and he served seven years of a 12 year sentence.
In 2010, he was convicted of failure to register as a sex offender, and was on probation for this when he was arrested on Saturday.
Cook County Court Judge Maria Kuriakos-Ciesil denied bond for Hill.
