An Orlando man was arrested on a child abuse charge after he put his daughter in the trunk of his Toyota Camry at a church parking lot.
Johnny Nguyen, 50, was arrested following the incident on Walnut Street on Sunday afternoon, according to an Orlando police report.
A woman told police she called 911 after she heard a girl scream at the church parking lot, looked in the direction, and saw a man — later identified as Nguyen — “throw” the child into the trunk of the car and shut the trunk, the report said.
The woman said she saw the man pace around the back of the Camry for about one minute.
The woman’s husband yelled at Nguyen and told him to let the girl out of the trunk and that they were calling authorities.
That’s when Nguyen unlocked the trunk and let the girl out.
When an officer arrived, Nguyen was confrontational and said, “What you want here, I didn’t do anything, she was only in trunk for few minutes.” THIS REMINDS ME OF A MOVIE LINE: NOTHING TO SEE HERE, KEEP IT MOVING!!!! LOL
The officer noted it was 97 degrees outside. OMG, I GUESS THERE WASN’T A ROOM TO SEND HER TOO AND THE CHURCH PRAYERS DIDN’T HELP, SO IT WAS TO ‘TRUNK HELL’ SHE GOES…WOW!
The Department of Children and Families was notified and Nguyen was booked into the Orange County Jail.
