A Washington man’s sister was recently arrested after he saw an Amber Alert on Facebook and realized a toddler he was babysitting had been abducted, TV station KOMO reported.

John Tuong was watching the little boy for his sister, who claimed the boy was her boyfriend's child, when he came across an Amber Alert on Facebook.

"And it looks like this child in my bed, and I'm like, 'oh my God,'" Truong told KOMO on Wednesday. "It's probably the craziest thing I've ever heard, you know what I mean? It's like something out of a movie."

Truong's sister has since been arrested, and police suspect she and the boy's grandmother staged the abduction by allegedly using a Taser on the boy's mother then driving her to another home and tying her in a garage.

The mother eventually escaped and frantically ran to a neighbor's home, KOMO reported.

"They attacked me and could you call the police," neighbor Tony Marta told the TV station the woman said.

Prior to realizing the boy had been abducted, Truong said they watched a movie, and the boy ate popcorn and played with his dog.

"He was a great kid. He didn't cry much or anything," Truong said.

Truong says he thinks his sister was trying to help her boyfriend who was in a horrible situation, KOMO reported.

She was being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.
