7 Year-Old Girl Fights Off Walmart Kidnapper

7 Year-Old Girl Fights Off Walmart Kidnapper

Unless you leash your kids when shopping, it's virtually impossible to keep them by your side in a store that sells toys. So we were happy to read that at least one wandering second grader out there, Brittney Baxter of Atlanta, knew what to do when a kidnapper attempted to drag her out of a Walmart store on Wednesday.

Brittney was in the toy aisle and her mom was in another section of the store when Thomas Woods grabbed her. The second-grader made such a ruckus that she scared Woods off. "I was kicking and screaming, and then he put his hand over my mouth, but I kept kicking," she later said in an interview. 

The entire incident was caught on a surveillance camera and Woods was arrested by police less than an hour after leaving the store.
