The story of a lady and her child facing an attempted kidnapping at an HEB on Rayford has been ruled untrue by Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.
The woman posted the story of her and her children escaping two men from HEB on Facebook and it quickly spread all of social media.
Soon after other stories similar to hers started circulating as well.
MCSO did some investigating and after reviewing surveillance footage from the groceries found the two men in the first story, never encountered the lady and her family.
“The video shows the men arriving and leaving at different times than the woman and her children. He said the men aren’t interacting at all with the woman and her children and don’t appear to be in the same sections of the store.”
Thank goodness these are just rumors and this stuff isn’t actually happening! Still, I think everyone should always be aware of their surroundings at all times.
This is the story she posted on Facebook July, 7th.
“PSA please be very careful and alert out and about with your children. I just had a very terrifying experience at the new HEB. Three men were profiling my toddler and one man attempted to get close enough to take her. I was extremely lucky to grab her in enough time and secure her in the cart and find management. She was pushing one of the kid carts when three men surrounded us and slowly worked their way closer and closer. Their behavior was extremely suspicious. They continued to follow me through the store as I hustled to find help. They stayed fanned out and continued to follow me until I made a break for the front of the store where I found the manager. They did not have s cart and did not grab any items from meat all the way to the turn by bottled water/household items. They stayed in the store wandering up and down isles. Separately, then meeting before separating again. They were approached by the manager and then at that time they grabbed a few items and paid. I refused to leave until I knew police were called.”
