A Mother screamed in terror after a man attempted to snatch her 5-year-old daughter outside Primark in the UK.

Witnesses said they could hear a woman shouting that her child was missing outside the popular shop in Manchester city centre.

A man could then be seen walking away with the girl on Market Street, at 6.50pm on Wednesday.

Police say that brave passers-by intervened, tackling the alleged kidnapper to the floor and helped return the child safely to her mother.

Shoppers reportedly detained the man, who was understood to be a stranger and not known to the family, until Police arrived and arrested him.

The alleged kidnapper is a 53-year-old man who has been arrested on suspicion of attempted child abduction.

He remains in police custody for questioning.

An eyewitness told the Manchester Evening News: “Everybody was shocked at the scene I just found out from people that saw it happen.

“The man tried taking the girl away from the mother and the mother starting shouting ‘my child has gone missing’.

“Then she saw the man walking away with the child and she screamed.”
