WOODBURY - "Stranger Danger" training helped a little girl who was nearly abducted in the toy aisle at a Walmart store in Bremen, Ga.

In a surveillance video recorded at the store, a man could be seen coming up from behind 7-year-old Brittney Baxter and grabbing her.

The suspect covered Baxter's mouth, but the girl kicked, squirmed and made so much noise that her would-be abductor was forced to let go and flee.

"You try to get away and go tell somebody that you trust," Baxter says.

Police caught up with and arrested the suspect a short time later.
