Man accused in Fort Worth girl’s kidnapping had previous sexual assault case dismissed


The child’s mother managed to jump into the car but was pushed out. A neighbor’s security camera captured the mother falling to the ground and her cries pleading for help.

The girl was found safe about eight hours later — at about 2:30 a.m. — at the WoodSprings Suites hotel in Forest Hill.

Fort Worth police said two people who attend a local church had spotted the car while driving around to help find the girl after seeing an image of the suspect’s car on social media. They led police to the hotel, where officers breached a door and found the girl inside.

Webb was arrested and the child was taken to a hospital to be checked out.

He is charged with aggravated kidnapping.

Webb doesn’t have a criminal history in Tarrant County, according to court records. His last known address is listed in Tyler, records say.

Webb has arrest records in Bowie County dating back to 1989 including burglary of a vehicle, burglary of a building, failure to identify as a fugitive and resisting arrest. In Tyler, Webb has been arrested on charges of terroristic threats, evading arrest and drug possession.
