A 55-year old Hispanic man is wrongly accused of kidnapping his grandson in Torrance, California. Abel Mata, a seventh-grade history teacher, was babysitting his two-year-old grandson on Friday morning when police showed up at the 700 block of Border Avenue.

Insider reports that a white woman started shouting at Mata for walking with his light-skinned grandson. She accused Mata of kidnapping the two-year-old toddler and called police. After questioning Mata, they quickly realized that someone had falsely accused him of a crime.
