The worrying footage was filmed at Macias Cellular & Computers in Los Angeles last Friday.

Surveillance video taken inside the store shows the mother walking in carrying a baby, with her daughter trailing behind.

The little girl is seen playing with a sweet machine by the door while he mom stands nearby in a queue.

Suddenly, a man opens the door of the shop and grabs the little girl’s arm, pulling her outside.

Luckily the child fell over outside and in a panic the kidnapper fled.

He was chased down the street by two witnesses and later arrested by police.

Shop owner Stella Moriel described the terrifying moment.

She said: “I heard screaming.

“I thought they were arguing with each other at first.

“When I came from behind the counter I asked what was going on.

“The mom was in here she was very hysterical.

“Her daughter was very traumatized, just clinging on to her and wouldn't let go."

“Both babies were crying,” she added.

San Bernardino County sheriff's investigators say they believe 24-year-old Terry Lynn Ransom may have been high on drugs when he attempted the kidnap.

Moriel said that she is glad Ransom is in custody, but that the incident was still terrifying.

“Even though he got caught it just lets me know how dangerous this world can really be,” she added.
