Investigators said the mother immediately called 911 when she saw the video. When officers arrived at the complex, they viewed the video and went to Luciano’s unit, the outlet reported.

Kelly Tuite, a mother and neighbor of the apartments, said Luciano’s behavior was worrying and off-putting, adding that children usually play in a field in the middle of the complex.

“I have two kids, it’s gross,” she said. “I don’t understand the mind of someone who does that.”

According to Tuite, the officers who responded to the call walked around the complex to update families about the incident.

In an on-camera interview with FOX 35, Tuite said she was so glad the little girl “knew what to do” and praised her “amazing parents” for teaching her how to react when should she ever find herself in such a situation.

She also said it’s “unfortunate that we even have to tell our kids to do something like this.”

“I’m thinking of my kids playing right outside our door,” Tuite said. “You have to keep an eye on them these days. You never know who is going to do what.”
