Girl fights off intruder who snatched her from her bed

Police in Southern California are searching for a man who broke into a home and tried to kidnap a little girl who fought him off with a Kung Fu move.

Police say the man broke in through a window of a home in El Cajon, early Sunday morning.

He made his way upstairs and grabbed the eight-year old girl while she was sleeping.

He tried to drag her down the stairs while her parents slept.

The little girl had trained in martial arts for self defense and used what police are calling a Kung Fu pressure move on his neck and then ran to her parents for help.

Investigators say, the intruder might be a homeless man. The girl said he "smelled like garbage."

Police used a k-9 to try and track him, but didn't find him.
