Why didn't security take his information and keep him until police came? The police have a satellite office right there!

OMG! Mall security dropped the ball for sure, what the hell were they thinking by not notifying police. This man could be out in some other shopping center planning another atempt. People think it doesnt happen here, but it happens everywhere. I am so glad this girl is safe, but very angry that mall security let him go and did not notofy police!!

Seriously? Security escorts this loser off the property? Kidnapping is against the law! Mall security, come on! How can anyone feel safe at Fashion Square Mall? This loser can go around to another door and try to take another child. Step it up, Mall Security. Thank goodness the child is safe. Dad you are a hero! Mall security what a colossal disappointment!

We can't go downtown because of the homeless and the beggars, can't go to Fashion Square Mall (those idiots) because of child abductors, can't go to Barracks Road Shopping Center because of potential bank robbers. What a mess!

The mall security is not worth a ****! They are fat and lazy, they don't help out anyone! They stand around and talk to each other.The mall needs a new set of Managers! All new employes!Let's hope the police will find the person!

The mall security made a huge error. The perpetrator is probably on the malls security camera. This would be a very scary experience for a parent.

I thought we had mall security for a reason. I can not believe they escorted a man off of the property FOR ATTEMPTED CHILD ABDUCTION!! Are you serious?! We were just there last night with my children and I had no idea this even happened. We need REAL COPS working at the mall. Apparently security is NOT security and I definitely will not feel safe there. And to read they didn't even call the real cops until several hours later is even more unbelievable. I say fire them and keep Albemarle County Police there full time.
