Girl screams, thwarts Corona store kidnap attempt

Police are looking for a man whose apparent kidnap attempt of a little girl in a Southern California store toy aisle was thwarted by the 5-year-old's screams.

Several shoppers told Corona police investigators they saw the man grab the girl Saturday night in the Big Lots store. The girl told officers she was in the toy aisle when a man grabbed and pulled her.

The girl screamed and the man fled on foot.
