BREMEN, Ga. -- Seven-year-old Brittney Baxter was looking at princess toys at a Walmart in Bremen, Georgia, when a man grabbed her and tried to carry her away.

But Baxter fought back.

"I was kicking and screaming, and then he put his hand over my mouth, but I kept kicking," she said.

The man is seen on store surveillance footage carrying Baxter as she thrashes around, trying to get away. Once she starts kicking the man puts her down and takes off running.

Bremen police later arrested 25-year-old Thomas Andrew Woods. He was later charged with attempted kidnapping. Other charges are pending.

Police said Woods was out on parole after being convicted of voluntary manslaughter.
