Two sanitation workers in Louisiana have been hailed as heroes after rescuing a 10-year-old girl who had been kid-napped from a family member’s house. According to the New Iberia Po-lice Department, the girl, Jalisa Lasalle, went missing from a family member’s New Iberia residence between 1 and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Investigators first felt she was in “imminent dan-ger,” and an Amber Alert was issued in the middle of the night, describing a grey 2012 Nissan Altima that Jalisa was last seen getting into.
Officers can be seen carrying suspect Michael Sereal, 33, a-way from the silver automobile in the footage. He can be heard yelling, “Why are you doing this to me?” at one point. According to ABC Lafayette, Louisiana station KATC, he is a friend of one of the girl’s family members. According to online lock-up records, Sereal, of New Iberia, is now being detained without bond at the Iberia Parish lock-up on ac-cusations of agg-ravated kid-napping of a minor and failing to register as an s-x offender.
For a conviction of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, he is registered on the New Iberia s-x offender database. It is unknown if Sereal has hired a counsel medical personnel assessed the child after she was discovered, according to Louisiana State P-olice. Following the rescue, she posed with Merrick and Antoine in a photo released on the housekeeping company’s social media website. According to the p-olice, the investigation is still underway.
