"She says, 'Just so you know, I was arrested for attempted kidnapping.' That`s when I was like, 'OK, you know what, there's something wrong,'" Youngs told KCTV. "All of a sudden, she starts walking off with my daughter. I yelled at her, I said, 'I need my baby back, please. Give me my baby back.'"
The woman hesitated before handing back the child. Youngs then asked Target employees to call police, WDAF reported. Officers arrived but told Youngs they could not make an arrest.
“They just said, 'Well, there’s nothing we can really do because you technically gave her permission to hold your baby,' and my exact words were, ‘OK, so me giving her permission to hold my baby for a couple minutes gives her permission to take off with my child?'” Youngs told the television station.
Youngs says the situation was frightening.
"Someone could come up to you and just be as nice as possible, and I try to trust people, and so many people do, but you can't trust anyone," she told WDAF.
