A man reportedly tried to abduct a child in the Kroger parking lot in the 300 block of E. Pioneer Pkwy on Wednesday, July 19, says the Grand Prairie Police Department.

A mother, Victoria Edwards, was in the Kroger parking lot when a man approached her shopping cart and tried to take the cart with her infant child seated inside. Edwards was several feet away from her baby when her son sounded the alarm.

“Marcus yells, ‘Mom, this guy’s trying to take Maddie’.”

The Mother turned and saw a 50 to 60-year-old Hispanic man with a salt and pepper mustache and mole under his left eye.

“I grab the end basket We’re literally playing tug of war with her and she’s screaming at the top of her lungs, he’s screaming, and I’m just yelling, Let her go! Give me back my baby. Give me back the basket. Get out of here. Let her go.,” Edwards said.

The commotion got the attention of other shoppers and Edwards said the man eventually gave up.

Police said the suspect got into the passenger side of an older black Dodge Ram 4-door truck with tinted windows, a chrome grille, and an unreadable paper license plate which left the area.

A cash reward is being offered for any information leading to the arrest of the suspect.

The phone number to the Crime Stoppers tip line is 972-988-8477.
