Mum's horror as 'child snatch gang tried to take her young daughter' in Asda

A MUM has shared her horror after she claimed a gang tried to snatch her daughter while the pair shopped in an Asda store.

The unnamed woman took to social media to share details of the chilling incident at the supermarket in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent.

She said that two men and a woman approached her young daughter inside the store and tried to grab her arm.

She wrote: "There were two men and a woman. The woman even had a little girl with her so she should have known better.

"It knocked me sick and shook me up. I've never felt so bad shopping in all my life, ever."

Several other parents have since responded to the post, sharing that they had also witnessed a group behaving strangely towards their kids recently.

One woman wrote: "This sounds like the same people that tried to grab my two-year-old's hand whilst she was in a trolley at Tesco in Hanley."

A relative of the Asda mum also took to Facebook to warn shoppers to watch out, adding police had been informed.

He said: "Watch out if you're out shopping with your kids. Two men and one woman with a child – all eastern European – tried to take my sister's little girl in Asda.

"Luckily she noticed and grabbed her arm straight away but they still followed her around even until my sister told the cashier."

Police confirmed to Stoke-on-Trent Live "inquiries are continuing".

A spokesperson for the force said: "Police were called at about 8.50pm on 8 January to a store on Scotia Road, Tunstall, to reports of two men and a woman acting suspiciously.

"Officers attended and reviewed CCTV footage."
