An 8-year-old girl was found safe after two “heroes” spotted the car driven by the man suspected of kidnapping her, authorities in Texas said Sunday.

Salem Sabatka was found safe and the 51-year-old man accused of abducting her was taken into custody, Fort Worth Police Department spokesperson Buddy Calzada told reporters.

“It’s a phenomenal feeling,” he said. “This story right now would put a smile on anybody’s face.”

Salem was walking with her mother Saturday evening when a car approached them and a man grabbed the young girl, Calzada said. The woman tried to save her daughter, but the suspect shoved her out of the car and sped away.

Police issued an Amber Alert and posted photos of Salem and the suspect’s car on social media, including a video of the kidnapping captured by a Ring doorbell camera.
