A MUM has revealed her horror after a stranger "grabbed" her two-year-old daughter while she was on the school run.
Terrified Rebecca Wake claims the toddler was approached by a woman as she pushed her son in a pram a metre ahead of her.
The 27-year-old confronted the woman, who then fled the horror in Hull at around 9am on Friday.
Rebecca told Hull Daily Mail: "I was walking with my son in the pram and my daughter Mia was a bit further back.
"She was only about a metre behind me but I turned round after a couple of seconds and this woman had grabbed her.
“I turned towards her and said ‘get the f*** off my daughter.’ She let go and ran off into Boulevard. I was horrified to be honest and I couldn’t believe she had done it.
"I was absolutely livid and I was so angry after it happened. I was shaken up because you read about children being snatched all the time and I hope it would never happen to me but when it almost does you think ‘oh my God.’
“I said to my partner, ‘what is I hadn’t turned back when I did? Or what if she had got a hold of my pram as I went to grab Mia?’”
Worryingly, Rebecca revealed it isn't the first time the woman has tried to take her daughter.
The mum claims Mia was targeted a few months ago when she was in the same area in a bigger group of people.
She has now reported the incident to police and has warned other parents to be vigilant on Facebook.
Rebecca said: "Parents in the area just need to be careful and keep an eye on their kids. I wish I had kept hold of my little girl’s hand that morning and I just dread to think of what could have happened.”
Anyone with information should contact Humberside Police on 101 quoting log number 265 of October 12.
