The 11-year-old girl in Florida who fought off an alleged kidnapping attempt this week credited "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" for helping her escape.
The girl said she marked her attacker with the blue slime she had been playing with because she “knew that might be better evidence if the cops did find him.”
Cops say when they arrested the 30-year-old man he “had blue slime all over his own arms.” And when asked how she felt after her narrow escape, the girl said, "mostly proud of myself," and said she believed "SVU" Detective Olivia Benson would probably tell her, "You're brave and good job!"

“Law & Order: SVU” star Mariska Hargitay praised the 11-year-old Florida girl who used a tip from the show to help catch her would-be kidnapper.
Hargitay called Alyssa Bonal “brave” and “smart” in a heartfelt Instagram post. Hargitay wrote, “Alyssa, first and most important, I am so relieved and grateful to know that you are safe. And I am so honored to be part of your incredible story. You are one BRAVE, Strong and Smart young woman. I think the SVU squad might have to add slime to their crimefighting gear! Take good care of yourself and each other. With all my love, your number one fan, Mariska.”
