Police say an alert neighbor helped rescue a young girl from a predator's house.

According to court documents, 42-year-old Jose Guadalupe Ramiro reportedly grabbed a 14-year-old girl outside a Dollar Store near 55th and Glendale avenues and brought her to his house where he touched her inappropriately.

Police said a man was outside washing his car when he saw Ramiro walk into the house with the young girl and then heard the young girl crying.

The man walked up to the house and asked what was going on.

Ramiro touched the girl again and let her go, according to the police report. He told her not to tell police.

The girl told her mom who told police. Police arrived and were interviewing the neighbor when Ramiro returned home on his bicycle.

He was arrested and book into jail on charges of kidnapping, assault and sexual abuse.
