Accused kidnapper of girl held on $500,000 cash bond

There’s an update today in a local case that made national news back in August, as a man accused of kidnapping a South Valley girl before being chased down by a neighbor was back in court Friday. 

Phillip Garcia is accused of pulling a six-year-old girl into his van near Blake and Unser on August 15.

The case got national attention because a neighbor, Antonio Diaz Chacon, saw it happen and chased the van.

As the neighbor pursued him, Garcia crashed the van and fled.

Chacon rescued the girl and was later hailed as a hero.

In court today at his arraignment, the judge kept Garcia’s bond at $500,000 cash only.
