Man kicked and punched girl in random attack, put plastic bag over her head: Police


A Florida man is facing an attempted murder charge after police say he nearly killed a 9-year-old girl during a random attack in the bathroom of a Jacksonville, Fla., Best Buy store.

James Patrick Tadros, 29, is also charged with false imprisonment and criminal mischief in the incident which happened just after 5 p.m. Friday at the store at 9930 Southside Boulevard, according to a release from the Jacksonville Police Department.

According to the release, a witness heard someone screaming and crying inside the women’s restroom and went inside to see if they needed help.

The witness got Best Buy employees to go into the restroom, and one of the employees looked under the handicapped stall and saw Tadros holding the victim with her head inside the toilet, police said.

Tadros, who police listed as 6-foot-0 and 250 pounds, dropped the girl and she was able to crawl into another stall and was helped out of the bathroom by an employee. The suspect was detained by employees until officers arrived, police said.

The victim told police that Tadros kicked and punched her and put a plastic bag over her head and stuck her head in the toilet, police said. She told a store employee she didn’t know him.

The girl was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment for her injuries. Tadros was booked into jail and was being held without bond. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.
