Hero of the Month: 7 Year Old Brittney Baxter Fights Off Attempted Kidnapping of Ex-Con Thomas Andrew Woods in Georgia Walmart



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.

      Maybe there wasn’t anybody behind that camera that caught this act but if there was he or she should have been waiting at the exit on this pos and made sure he was greeted with glass door in the face. There is no way he should have made it out of that store.

      Makes one question the manslaghter charge. Was it a plea bargain for a lesser charge? This guy may have a long rap sheet.

      I am glad that he was unsuccessful in the attempted kidnapping because Brittney knew what to do.

      her parents could not have been that close by or they would have seen this man grab their child and heard her screams!

      poor parenting letting your child out of your site while you shop or ect.

      thank you GOD for looking out for this child.

      So happy for this little girl that she used her head and what she was taught and this loser got scared off.

      Could have been a much different outcome. Have they tracked the perp down yet?

      Another Loser that should be put out of his misery for attempting to harm an innocent child.

      It looks like she bit the dirt bag, when he put his hand over her mouth. I hope she did. He looks as though he was walking the isles just looking for prey. With a manslaughter charge, what in the world was he doing walking around free with normal folks. He should be in prison with the rest of the pervs.

      He got a lesser charge because the police messed up. He asked for a lawyer but they kept questioning him. He’s a loser for killing Jim Price, who is his fathers cousin not his uncle. He should have been in jail and not destroying another family.
