Best Buy attack victim to receive bravery award tonight
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The little girl nearly beaten to death at a Southside electronics store will receive an award for bravery Thursday.
The Justice Coalition will honor the youngster with the Outstanding Courage and Bravery Award at the Champions for Justice Award Dinner. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. Inside the Morocco Shrine Center on St. Johns Bluff Road.
In August, a 9-year-old was dragged into a bathroom at a Best Buy and attacked by a man. The girl was bloodied, but survived. The suspect, James Tadros, was arraigned last month.
Nine awards are expected to be handed out at the ceremony.
