San Diego Grandma Fights Off Would-be Abductor in Parking Lot

San Diego police were searching on Friday for a man suspected of trying to abduct a woman and her 3-year-old grandson in a Walmart parking lot, but who was thwarted when the grandmother fought back and scared the would-be kidnapper away. The abduction attempt took place as the woman, whom police did not identify, had finished shopping on Wednesday and had loaded her purchases into her minivan, a police spokesman said. She had just strapped her grandson into his car seat when the would-be abductor came up behind her, put his arm around her neck and his hand over her mouth and tried to drag her, Officer Mark Herring said.
