TikToker says a random man tries to ‘arrest underage daughter’ of citizens

In a viral TikTok posted on November 23, a man was seen cradling a teen lying face down on the ground in the street.

“She is 17 years old and she is staying in a friend’s apartment she was trying to leave,” Steph Marie Dehoog (@stephmariedehoog), who posted the video, wrote in the overlay text.

In the comments, Dehoog said that the girl in the video is her daughter. “He stopped her from choking, she pulled her about 15 feet and tried to get her into his car,” the user wrote.

Dehoog also wrote that the video was taken in Las Vegas and that when a school officer arrived on the scene, “he had a gun at his side.”

“It was a targeted kidnapping,” Dehoog wrote about the man’s actions. “She was screaming and kicking him, that’s why he couldn’t get her in the car.”

Regarding her daughter in the video, @stephmariedehoog wrote that she was “scared but okay.”

Dehoog has since posted other TikTok videos but did not provide further information about the incident. Users did not immediately respond to Daily Dot’s request for comment.

Those who commented on the video agreed that the teen in the video looked like she was being kidnapped.

“So this is basically a video of a girl being kidnapped?” user @notjosecuervo commented.

“He is trying to kidnap her [and all y’all] recorded,” wrote @pyt__nemooo.

“He is just a random person, he has no right to a title like [citizen’s arrest],” @Lauramireles577 commented.

Dehoog wrote in the video’s comments that she couldn’t file charges against the man with the police because “the school police had it.”

“There is nothing I can do to make him pay for this,” she commented.

The Daily Dot has contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
