A loss prevention officer at a southeast Fort Worth Walmart stopped a possible kidnapping from happening on Monday evening, police said.
The employee confronted a man and a woman who were seen trying to take a child out of a cart, Officer Tracy Carter said.
The pair then left the store, which is in the 2900 block of Renaissance Square off of East Berry, and drove away in a red SUV.
The Fort Worth Police Department was notified about the attempted kidnapping at around 6 p.m. About two hours later, Carter said officers were still at the store investigating.
