OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – A mother says a stranger started choking her 4-month-old daughter in the checkout line at a Walmart store.
Mom Quisha Hill told WDAF that she regularly shops at the Walmart in Overland Park, Kansas. On Wednesday morning, she stopped to pick up a few items.
“While I was at the counter top, speaking with the lady bagging up my groceries, this random man comes out of nowhere and yanks the car seat out of the car, has my baby, and he’s like ‘I’m taking the baby. I’m stealing her. I’m taking her. Call 911. Call 911,” Hill told WDAF.
Hill said her baby turned red as the man started choking her. She said shoppers quickly jumped in to help, tackling the man to the ground.
Hill said the man appeared to be under the influence and tried to wear the baby’s car seat as a hat.
The man is in police custody. Police and Walmart officials are investigating the incident.
