We are shocked by all of this!!

Yes, we must emphasize that the little girl in the video is safe and with her family.

Note also that the man in the video, the suspect, has been arrested and is in police custody. The man in the video was armed with a knife and, authorities say, that girl’s mother was home at the time, caring for a baby in the house and had no idea the presence of an intruder.

The video was taken in Idaho and the suspect was Briayan Vergara, 28, who was listed on charges:

  • Grated
  • Second degree kidnapping
  • Battery with intent to commit a serious crime
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault or assault against certain personnel
  • Resisting arrest
  • Three counts of burglary

Police believe the suspect also visited three different residences on or before the day this video was taken.
