Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I was ALMOST abducted from the Bronx Zoo at age 3......

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I was with my mom, her boyfriend & his son. The four of us were walking, and her BF was holding his sons hand & my hand. My mom said she bent down to tie her shoes, when she was done she looked up at her BF & noticed I wasn't with him. She asked where I was - he said he thought my mom grabbed my hand so he let go of me (didn't even bother to turn, look & make sure) - my mom panicked & she said something told her to run to the the area where you left the zoo -- & sure enough she saw a man holding my hand, trying to walk out of the exit with me.

She screamed for him to stop, screamed for help & two men ran up and grabbed the man. He told police that the he found a little girl & was escorting her to lost & found so she could find her mommy!! (sure you were, that's why you were trying to exit the zoo with a crying little girl)

Anything crazy ever happen in your life that could've ended up a lifetime movie?


*I actually experienced something worse than almost being abducted at the zoo ::

When I was 7, I remember being woken up in the middle of the night by my mother, she grabbed me and put her finger over her mouth (as to say SSSHHHH - be quiet) we ran and hid under our kitchen table (it was a round glass table but we had a super long table clothe (it almost reached the ground) anyway we were hiding under the table & I saw two pairs of black boot walking around our apartment (it scared the shit out of me)

They were there for what felt like forever (my mom said it was like 5/10 mins) - crazy shit is they didn't ransack our apartment or even take anything.

We moved to Staten Island like a day or two later.

Later on in life I found out that my bio dad was into some shit he shouldn't have been into & those guys were there looking for him. My mom & dad hadn't been together since I was like 1 - but it was the last known address they knew he lived at.

Our yard was along a road that was not used very much except for people in the neighborhood.  My mom was at work and my dad was in the house (I was about 6).  I was playing outside in the yard with my dog when a guy pulled up and tried to ask me for directions.  I started walking back up to my house and the guy got out of his car, my dog started barking at him and alerted my neighbor who was sitting on her side porch, she screamed for him to get away from me and he took off.  My dad came running outside and ended up calling the police and made a report.  Nothing ever came of it.

when I was 8 there was this older guy probably 18 who was flowing me for a week. I remember he never talked to me but everyday he came closer and closer and hewas fundling himself. I told my parents and by the time they ran to me he took off.we lived in a old European apartment with spiral staircase. Well it really scared me and made me mad so every time I left my home I took my germanshepard wiyh me. the last day of his stalking I got so mad that I yelled at him . " what do you want" but he never said anything. so I seeked my dog on him. he got torn up pretty bad in on the stearcase and my dad ran down and kicked the living heck out of him. Then he got the dog and told me to go inside and dont come out. I looked back and the last thing I seen was my father dragging the guy down tge stairs. then I heared the police car siren. My dad came home a couple of hours lather and told me I never have to worry about the guy anymore.

Omg that's scary!!!! When is was like 15 i met this guy online and ended up having a sexual relationship with him a few times. When i was 17 or 18 he showed up at my work when my boss and i were leaving and asked me to do it again but i told him no. I was with someone. I found it odd that he knew where i worked. Turns out he was checking my Facebook. He sent me a message last august and i didn't know because it went to my other message box that i didn't know i had. Now that i think about it i got really lucky that this guy didn't abduct me or anything. My profile is now set to private and he always uses fake accounts so i have no way of keeping tabs on him.


Quoting RandiBear:

I had a "friend" in highschool who signed on to my screen name to check something for me while my net was down and ended up talking to a guy who messaged while she was on. She knew I had been talking to them and so she just pretended to be me. She didn't realize I had stopped talking to him when he started talking about meeting up; I got a bad vibe from him.


A few months later another friend and I were walking down the street and an older looking cop car pulled up beside us. The two cops who got out told us we matched the description of two girls reported as runaways and asked for our IDs. My friend handed hers over but I didn't have mine with me. They took down our addresses and parents numbers then drove off. We didn't think anything of it until about twenty minutes later we saw them watching us while we were at a park so we decided to leave and go back to her house. As we were crossing the main road to head back, they came speeding out of the parkinglot of the park to follow us. We took off at a run and wound our way through apartment complexes to try to lose them. It didn't occur to us that going to the house where no adults were home was a bad idea until we were already there. The car pulled up in the back alley used exclusively for the trash trucks and the guys jumped her privacy fence then came prying at windows and doors. We hid in her parent's closet and called the cops because it was obvious they weren't who they said they were at this point. The cops showed up and took our report and called our parents to come to the house (the guys had left when they realized they couldn't get in).


We thought it was all said and done with until they showed up in a different car in the school parkinglot, followed us to the mall, to the theatre...we reported it each time but by the time the cops got there they were gone. Then they suddenly seemed to vanish. We didn't see them for  months; until we were at the Christmas parade. I thought I saw one of them on the other side of the street and got the chills so I moved deeper into the crowd. I wasn't for sure because it had been fleeting and in between trucks passing by. Ten minutes later I felt a hot, burning pain in my side like I had been punched. I thought some kid had slammed into me at first but then I felt something warm on my shirt and looked down. I had been knifed low in my abdomen, right above my hip. I ended up with 22 stitches and 3 staples.


A couple months later I was sleeping on my couch because I was sick when our dogs started going off (we had 4 dogs lol). I sat up really fast and when I did, I was facing the back sliding glass door where a man was standing, trying to pick the lock and he had a big hunting knife strapped to his leg. I screamed, he ran. My mom called the cops and we had helicopters and everything out looking for him for hours. They didn't find him, but they kept patrols around the house for a couple months.


That was the last time I saw or heard from either of those guys but it could have been so much worse. As it is, I can't handle being in crowds of people without having panic attacks.

i was actually "kidnapped" when i was 4 by my bio dad.  i had not seen him since i was one. i don't know a ton about it.  i know he took me to a park for a visit but then took me to california. ( i lived in MN at the time) i was gone for about 2 weeks.  don't remember any of it except a few memories of driving down a highway & eating out alot.  my grandparents owned a milk company & they had my picture on the carton lol.  they still have one i think.    i guess he brought me back himself, couldn't deal with me lol.  he was arrested & they terminated his rights.  he called me when i was 18 & told me that he had comptemplated finding me & "flirting" with me to see if i "felt" anythign towards him.  can you say CREEPER!!

when I was 12 I took my dog to walk about 8 pm I had him dressed in his mouth guard that was made of metal. it was a rule in my country that any large dog has to wear a mouth guard when out in public and be on a leash. so I was walking him and I noticed a drunk man was rushing toward me and when he got close to me he was telling me what he want to do to me and it wss not pretty. my dog start growling and barking so I grabed the mouth guard of his nose and let him go. and I ran the other way. I heared tge man hitting my dog and my dog grawling like something is in his mouth and shaking it. then everything gone quiet and I heared my dogs foot tumping behind me on the pable roud. And when he cut up with me I stopped and looked at him and his upper body was full of blood and his mouth. so I putt the leash on him and we ran home. I gave him a bath but he had no wounds or nothing. I guess that was the drunks blood. my father gone back to tge spot what I described but he did not found anyone only blood on the ground and it was leading toward a buss stop. so he came back home.
