Reports say a man on his way to work heard Nailla’s cries Tuesday morning and found her under some bleachers near 69th Street and Marshall Road. She was cold, upset, and all she had was a T-shirt on- police were called immediately. Police transported her directly to the Childrens Hospital to be checked out, were her family rushed to be by her side
Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Action News, “The abducted little girl came running to him, screaming for help. All she had was a T-shirt on. And she said that she had run away from the people that had taken her.
This story originated yesterday morning when 5 year old Nailla was taken from her Bryant School on 6100 Cedar Avenue in West Philadelphia where her mother, says she dropped off her daughter at 8:45 a.m., just minutes before a woman covered with an all black Niqab, or Muslim veil, which only shows her eyes, signed in with an illegible name and took the little girl.
Surveillance footage shows Nailla walking from her classroom with the unknown woman at the school around 8:50 a.m.
“[She] told her teacher that she was me, her mother, and that she was taking her out to breakfast and Nailla was already signed out at the office and she took my child and left,” Rashid said.
Police say the woman knew Nailla Robinson by name and there was a substitute teacher in the classroom.
“I don’t think that my child knew her. I think that my child thought that she was a familiar person because she was Muslim,” Rashid said.
Authorities say the girl’s daycare arrived to pick her up at 3:00 p.m. which is when the school finally realized something was wrong.
