7-year-old Brittney Baxter was looking in the toy aisle while her mom was just a few feet away at a local Walmart in Bremen, Georgia, when a man approached her, grabbed her, and put his hand over her mouth.
Brittney narrowly escaped being kidnapped by the man, Andrew Woods, when she kicked and screamed, struggling a way to escape.
He eventually let her go and ran out of the store, but thankfully, he was caught by police about 10 miles away. He had just been released from jail a few months ago after completing a prison sentence for involuntary manslaughter.
Watch the chilling surveillance video above of Brittney escaping her would-be captor. She also speaks about how she was able to escape. Brave, brave girl.
Her mother later said she used the "Stranger Danger" method, which is important to teach children about strangers. CLICK HERE for more info.
That little girl deserves a whole lotta praise.
