(KHOU) HOUSTON - A Fort Bend County mother fears a man tried to kidnap her baby at a grocery store this weekend. It was caught on security camera video, and now Houston Police are investigating.
Florence Monauer was at the H Mart in southwest Houston Saturday on Bellaire at Beltway 8. A stranger came by, spoke to her baby, then walked away. Monauer turned to look at an item on the shelf. A moment later, she heard the baby shopping cart cover move, she looked up and saw the man pulling her 14-month-old out of the cart.
“At no point did he talk to me. He never asked me to pick up my baby," Monauer said. “He said the strangest thing to me, ‘I wanted to take you when your mom wasn’t looking.’”
