He’s been identified as Edis Moya Alas of El Salvador.

Cops say they found the girl with Alas at Titus Park, not far from her home. They made the big break thanks to a neighbor who reported hearing screams in the area.

“The young child immediately saw police officers and ran towards us. She was very scared. She was very nervous,” Fort Worth PD told NewsFix. “We owe a great debt to the citizen that actually heard the screams and notified us to go into that field area.”

The girl’s parents say they woke up around four o’clock Saturday morning to find their front door open and their daughter gone.

Alas is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child and aggravated kidnapping.
