A hero 16-year-old boy saved a girl, nine, from a paedophile attack by a convicted rapist after hearing her desperate cries for help in the street.
Quick-thinking Vyacheslav Doroshenko was walking through snow in Irkutsk, Russia after his basketball training when he saw a man in his fifties grab a girl and push him into his car.
Chilling CCTV footage shows the horrific moment the attacker grabbed the girl, and also the paedophile kidnapper later demonstrating with a mannequin how he thrust the girl into his car.

The teenager said: “I overtook her, reached the railway and heard her screaming.
“And I saw how a man was forcing her into a car.”
He heard the girl shout ‘Help’.
“I quickly turned around, saw the only adult person, ran to him, told him what happened, and we ran towards the kidnapper’s car,” said Vyacheslav.

The man who Vyacheslav pleaded to help – named Gleb Sizykh – was warming his car engine after a factory shift.
“It was clear the boy was scared,” he said.
“I rushed towards that car.
“I wanted to see how that man and the girl herself would react.
“As soon as the boy and I began to approach the car, it abruptly started off, and drove away.”
Vyacheslav then got into Gleb’s car and they tailed the paedophile kidnapper who had been released from jail in 2017 after the second of two rape convictions for which he served jail sentences.

The attacker drove his Toyota into a dead end and Gleb blocked his way out.
They confronted the man then let the girl go and lied: “I got confused, I thought, it was my sister.”
The child stood weeping and Gleb went to help her, saying:
“She stood at the fence crying.
“I did not know how to approach her.
“I understood that she would now be afraid of me.”
