Abducted Fort Worth 8-year-old found safe; Suspect in custody

Fort Worth police say a girl who was snatched from her mother while walking along a street Saturday evening has been found safe.

An Amber Alert was issued for Salem Sabatka after the kidnapping, which happened at 6:38 p.m. Saturday in the 2900 block of 6th Avenue, police said.

Salem and her mom were on a walk when a man in a vehicle approached the two. He grabbed the girl. The mother jumped in the vehicle to get her daughter back, but the suspect shoved her out and then drove away.

The mother immediately called police.

Police say a citizen located the suspect's vehicle and led police to a hotel where they found Salem and took her safely into custody.

The suspect, identified as Michael Webb, was also taken into custody and charged with aggravated kidnapping.

Webb has an extensive criminal history, including an arrest for sexual assault in Smith County in April 2018, but that case was later dismissed.
