A woman attempted to abduct a baby in the parking lot of a Phoenix Target store.

Phoenix police report that on November 4, a woman, later identified as 38-year-old Nicole Danielle Nutting, approached a car in the parking lot of the Target store near 19th Avenue and Camelback Road.

Nutting allegedly yelled out, "Travis, Travis, the baby's right here; that's my baby!"

Police say Nutting pulled the hair of the 7-month-old child's mother in an attempt to take the baby.

She grabbed the car seat the child was in, when another passenger in the car pulled the car seat away from her.

Police say the mother "used bodily get Nutting away from the baby."

Nutting was located by police about a mile away and was arrested.

Court records show that Nutting has an extensive criminal history, including assault, criminal damage, and drug convictions.

She has been charged with assault and attempted custodial interference.
