Mariska Hargitay just praised the young girl who helped the authorities catch her attempted kidnapper with the help of Law and Order: SVU.
Earlier this week, 11-year-old Florida resident Alyssa was mixing slime and blue paint while waiting at a bus stop when a man driving a white van pulled up and got out of the car. He came towards Alyssa with a knife and attempted to drag her back to the van, however, Alyssa was able to fight him off. Before she did, however, she made sure to wipe the blue paint onto his arm—a trick she learned from Mariska’s series Law and Order: SVU. Alyssa told Today of the quick decision, “I knew that that might be better evidence if the cops do find him.”
Amazingly, it worked exactly as Alyssa intended.
“The victim at the time of the attempted abduction was playing with blue slime,” Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons said at a news conference on May 19. “The suspect, when we caught him, had blue slime all over his own arms.”
