Defuniak Springs man arrested after grabbing child

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla. (WMBB) — A Hispanic man was arrested after grabbing a 4-year-old child in a local retailer.

The mother was able to free her child while screaming at the man and immediately called 911, Defuniak Springs Police said.

The suspect, 26-year-old Otto Reginaldo Xol-Xol, fled the scene but was located almost immediately by officers in a nearby automotive parts store.

Authorities said Xol-Xol was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

A bilingual Walton County Sheriff’s Deputy spoke to the suspect who reportedly said that he grabbed the 4-year-old because he liked him.
