Hero of the Month: 7 Year Old Brittney Baxter Fights Off Attempted Kidnapping of Ex-Con Thomas Andrew Woods in Georgia Walmart
NEVER LET IT BE SAID THAT ALL CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE SHOWN HOW TO REACT IN ATTEMPTED KIDNAPPING … ENTER OUR BRAVE 7 YEAR OLD HERO BRITTNEY BAXTER …
7 year old Brittney Baxter is a hero after her quick thinking yesterday in an attempted kidnapping at a Georgia Walmart. Thomas Andrew Woods, an ex-con convicted of voluntary manslaughter, was on probation just could not help himself. The 25 year old ex-con was taken into custody in the attempted kidnapping of Brittany Baxter. Had it now been for the little girl’s quick reaction to resist the abduction by kicking and screaming when the felony dirt-bag attempted to drag her out of the Walmart, who knows how tragic this story would have become. Actually, we know how bad it would have been.
From the AJC …
Thomas Andrew Woods, 25, of Austell, was taken into custody and questioned before being arrested Wednesday afternoon, Bremen Police Chief Keith Pesnell told the AJC.
“We’re pretty confident we’ve got the right guy,” Pesnell said.
But as Woods was being led in handcuffs from the police department to a patrol car, he told reporters that the police had the wrong man.
“I was never there,” Woods said.
According to police, Woods started talking to Brittney Baxter in the toy aisle of the Wal-Mart and then grabbed her and put his hand around her mouth.
But Brittney kicked and screamed, and the man let her go, police said. Neither she nor her mother, who was nearby in the store, was injured.
From the files of once a piece of law breaking scum, always a piece of law breaking scum, Thomas Andrew Woods was released in October 2011 from the Wheeler Correctional Facility, where he had been since April 2007 following his manslaughter conviction in DeKalb county. Nice, glad to see he learned advanced child sex predator in prison. Let’s hope they lock this POS, oh sorry, alleged POS away and throw away the key. Anyone that would attempt such a brazen kidnap attempt should never be allowed near the general public.
