Two balaclava-clad thugs tried to kidnap mum pushing baby boy in pram in the street

TWO men wearing balaclavas tried to bundle a mum into a car as she pushed her baby boy in a pram along the pavement.

The victim was walking along a road in Coventry when a small dark car stopped behind her on Friday night.

The two thugs got out of the vehicle and then tried to force the woman inside.

Her screams for help scared off her attempted abductors and they got back into the car and drove off.
