Police in Bexley are looking to speak to a woman following an attempted abduction of a toddler from Asda. The child’s mother was at the checkout when it is reported a woman lifted the child out of the shopping trolley. She then started to walk away with the 18-month-old boy before the mother intervened.
A woman believed to be the mother posted on Facebook: “I was putting my shopping on the till and this women took [the child] out of the trolley that was right next to me where he was sitting and walked away. Luckily I grabbed him. But as I grabbed him off her she repeatedly said ‘come with nanny’. I was in such shock.”
The suspect is described as being oriental and about 65 years old. She had black hair in a ponytail and was wearing glasses. She was wearing white trainers, red tracksuit bottoms and a long grey coat.
