Police in Philadelphia have released this shocking footage of an attempted child abduction in a coffee shop.
A man reached into a pram and tried to removed the infant while her parents were queuing at a branch of Dunkin’ Donuts.
CCTV shows how the mum immediately realised what was happening and began struggling with the man.
Moments later the dad joins her and they fight the man out of the door.
Police say the parents left the scene of the disturbing incident before officers arrived.
The suspect was arrested however, and police say he is known to them.
A witness said before he attempted to grab the child the man said: “‘That’s my baby”
Philadelphia police Capt. Sekou Kinebrew told local television station KYW : “It’s a rather peculiar set of circumstances, and we are actually asking for the parents — or who we believe to be the parents — to come forward and maybe give us a better idea of what happened out there.”
