OVERLAND PARK, KS - A man stunned a woman and her baby during a bizarre incident at a Walmart store Wednesday morning.

Around 7:25, the man walked up to a checkout line, grabbed the 4-month-old infant from the mother's shopping cart and tried to choke her according to Overland Park Police.

Another man intervened to stop the suspect from doing harm. The suspect ran from the store and was chased down and arrested. Police say he may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It isn't known whether the suspect was trying to abduct the baby.

The mother said her child is fine and she didn't know the suspect.
