Temar Boggs and Jocelyn Rojas

AFRICANGLOBE – Minutes after Temar Boggs heard that 5-year-old Jocelyn Rojas had gone missing, he noticed a suspicious car careening in and out of the side streets of his neighborhood.

The 15-year-old was hanging out with his friends at an apartment in Lancaster, Penn. on Thursday afternoon when he heard the news. So he and another friend, Chris Garcia, took to their bikes to join the search for Rojas, according to Lancaster Online.

He told reporters that one car in particular caught his eye. It turned around at the top of a hill near Garcia’s apartment, where several police officers were gathered. It began turning in and out of side streets in the neighborhood, which is known for its cul-de-sacs and dead ends.

Temar Boggs gave chase on his bicycle. He got close enough to the vehicle to see a little girl inside. He made eye contact with the driver, an older White male, who apparently got spooked enough to let Jocelyn Rojas get out of the car.

“She runs to my arms and said, ‘I need to see my mommy,'” Temar Boggs said.

He escorted her to police, who reunited her with her relatives. The town is hailing him as a hero.

The suspect, described as a White male between 50 and 70 years old, is still on the loose, FOX 59 reports. He was driving a maroon car with round taillights, and wearing green shoes, green pants and a red-and-white striped shirt. He reportedly walked with a limp.

    He is a hero but there is another aspect to this story stand your ground laws what if kidnapper had turned on him become violent towards him shot and killed him? Noone to tell his side of the story and now the criminal is let go just like they did zimmershit. The criminal is let go based on the vindication of white privilege . All of our actions have a double jeopardy.

    This is an amazing story. I just have one question: He chased the vehicle for 15mins on his bike. Was the car stuck in traffic? Or was the top speed limit on the car 20mph? Don’t call me a hater or say that I’m being negative. It’s a fair assessment.
