Texan mum Florence Monauer was shopping with her 14-month-old daughter when a strange man walked up and lifted the child right out of the trolley.
CCTV footage captured the man grabbing the child while her mother’s back was turned. Mrs. Monauer quickly turned around when she heard the disturbance of the trolley cover and confronted the would-be kidnapper.
“I think I was distracted for about a minute or so,” Mrs Monauer said.
“I think that if it weren’t for the cover, he probably would’ve made off with her quickly.”
Mrs. Monauer also noted that the man did not speak to her, directing his words only to her daughter and left the scene without groceries.
“It gave me chills just thinking that this could’ve happened to my child and it may happen to someone else. I definitely want him to get caught,” Mrs Monauer told KPRC, Houston.
