A MUM has told of her terror when a woman in a “red sparkly dress” tried to snatch her son.
The worried mother said she was with her kids in Burton, Derbyshire, on Sunday when they were approached.
The unnamed mum told Derbyshire Live: “She grabbed my son’s hand and said, ‘aww look at him, then I tried to walk away with my children but she wouldn’t let go of my son’s hand. She turned and said he is coming with me and wouldn’t let go of him.
“I said get off him, he is not going with you and she just kept repeating herself saying he’s coming with me.
“So I said again, ‘no get off him but she wouldn’t let go. I had to forcefully pull my son away from this woman and walk away.”
She has warned other parents to be careful after the woman’s frightening efforts to pull her son away.
She wrote on Facebook: “Please be careful with your children I have learned the hard way and I am still in shock and can’t believe what’s happened.
“Thankfully my little boy is OK, we are both still shaken but we are OK. My other son was with me too but she didn’t come near him.
“She tried to take him away from me.
“Children are precious please be careful.”
A spokesman for Staffordshire Police, said: “Officers were called to a report of a woman who approached a young boy and his mother at around 1.30pm on Sydney Street in Burton on September 1.
