Girl Fights Off Man in Georgia Walmart

Tools

By CBS 8 News

Authorities say a 7-year-old girl recalled her stranger danger training and was able to get away from a parolee who tried to abduct her at a Walmart store in west Georgia.
   
Police Chief Keith Pesnell says 25-year-old Thomas A. Woods of Austell, Ga., tried to take the girl Wednesday from a toy aisle while her mom was in a different aisle at the store in Breman.
   
Security video from the store shows a man carrying the girl away, releasing her after she struggled to get away.
   
Pesnell says Woods faces a charge of attempted kidnapping and was out on parole after being convicted of voluntary manslaughter in a suburban Atlanta county.
   
Atlanta TV station WAGA reports Woods said he is innocent and denied the abduction attempt as he was being led into jail.
