VALLEY STREAM, N.Y. (AP) - Police are searching for a woman who they say tried to abduct a 1-year-old child in the bathroom of a Long Island department store.

Nassau County police say it happened at 10:45 a.m. on Thursday at a Kohl’s store in Valley Stream.

Police say a mother took her young child into the store’s bathroom when another woman came in and complimented the child.

Authorities say the woman walked around the restroom and then grabbed the child’s arm and shouted, “give me the baby!”

The mother pushed the woman away and notified security. Police say the suspect was seen leaving the store in a livery cab.



Police are continuing to investigate; no arrests have been made. A spokeswoman for Kohl’s says the company is cooperating with authorities.
