To begin with, nothing about the man seemed out of the ordinary. He walked up to Kraus and explained that he was having trouble with the van’s radiator. Consequently, he asked if he could have some water so that he could try to cool down the overheating part.
As it happened, Kraus had just the thing. He’d bought a case of water for his son’s birthday party and it was sitting right there, just inside his front door. He said, “I figured I would give him some water and off he’d go.” However, as Kraus turned to get the water, his worst nightmare began.
Out of the corner of his eye, he saw the man suddenly grab Ryker. In the time it took Kraus to step inside his house, the man had scooped up the boy and was running back to his car at the end of the driveway. However, he hadn’t counted on how strongly Kraus would defend and protect his son.
