Little 5-year-old Nailla Robinson is the missing Philadelphia girl that was abducted from her school on Monday by a woman dressed in Muslim attire like her mother wears. And the attire worn by her abductor is making it more obvious why the child went willingly with the woman and why school employees didn't question her more per the information provided by Delcotimes.com.
Wearing a full-length black Muslim garment, with her face covered by a black veil aided the criminal in her abduction scheme, and it now makes it necessary for school administrators to give more attention to other women so dressed as a result of this woman's criminal act. And watch it turn out that the criminal involved isn't even a Muslim like Nailla's mother, who told the press that she wears the chador and niqab too, according to CBS.
A man walking near the 69th Street Terminal around 4:40 a.m. on Tuesday morning heard the missing Philadelphia girl child's cries for help, and came to her rescue thankfully. The man says Nailla Robinson told him "I've been stolen," after he found her hiding beneath a jungle gym set on the park playground. And all she was wearing at the time was a T-shirt. The young girl told the Good Samaritan that she didn't know her abductors, but that she ran away from them. And isn't that a miracle?!
In order to help calm other concerned parents, however, and to enlist the public's help in finding the suspects, the Darby Police headquarters will be the site of a press conference this afternoon at 3 p.m., and the Good Samaritan is expected to speak.
Capt. John Darby, the head of the Philadelphia Police Department Special Victim's Unit tasked with initially finding Nailla says "We have a fragile victim here," so it hasn't been possible to question her a lot given what she has been through. So don't expect too many details to be forthcoming. The police official also said that while it is believed that the abductor did know the victim, the child does not appear to have known her abductors.
What will not be discussed at the press conference is how the school authorities dropped the ball in this case, but given that the Delco Times reports school leaders have acknowledged that protocol wasn't followed in this case, maybe because of the attire worn by the mom normally, then expect to hear about some people in the school system being held accountable for the failure--and maybe some new dress policies for visitors seeking to remove children from the school.
