The Pima County Sheriff's Department is investigating an attempted kidnapping in Catalina.

Deputy Ryan Inglett tells KGUN9 that around 2:45 p.m. a woman was walking out from the Bashas in Catalina located at 15310 N Oracle Rd.

A suspect walked up to the woman making comments and touching her 1-year-old child. When the mother asked her to stop, the suspect attempted to grab the child, Inglett said.
