Who is 11-year-old Alyssa and what did she learn from Law & Order: SVU?

A brave 11-year-old girl from Florida fought off an attempted kidnapping at a bus stop and used a move she learned from watching Law & Order: SVU.

In an interview with NBC's "Today Show," the girl identified as Alyssa 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."

In fact, the move helped cops find the suspected attacker just hours later.

In a news conference this week, Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons said the girl was waiting for her school bus in Pensacola, Florida, the morning of May 18 when a man drove up.

"The man got out of his vehicle holding a knife, came towards me and I tried to run but he caught me," Alyssa told Today.

The man is seen trying to drag her back toward the car, but she fights back, and both fall to the ground. The man then fled to the vehicle and sped away.

Deputies were able to find the suspect just hours later and said an unexpected clue left behind by Alyssa helped identify him.

She had been mixing blue paint with homemade slime while waiting for the bus, and she made sure to get some of it on the man's arms when he attacked her.

She says she knew to mark the man with the slime from watching Law & Order: SVU with her mother.

"I knew that that might be better evidence if the cops do find him," she said.

"The victim at the time of the attempted abduction was playing with blue slime," Escambia County Sheriff Chip Simmons said at a news conference on May 19.

"The suspect, when we caught him, had blue slime all over his own arms."

Alyssa was asked what Hargitay's iconic character on SVU would think about her effort.

"Probably, you're brave and good job!" she said.

In fact, Hargitay shared an Instagram post about Alyssa's story and her quick thinking skills.
