Video shows the moment a child kidnapper tried to kidnap a 4-year-old boy from Walmart in Florida

A man tried to kidnap a 4-year-old boy from a Walmart in Florida and was captured on video.

Pablo Pintueles Hernandez was arrested Dec. 29 in Lee County and charged with false imprisonment of a child 13 years of age or younger.

Recently released surveillance footage captured the alleged child abductor allegedly trying to steal the boy from his family.

In the frightening clip, the boy is standing next to a family member pushing a cart into the store when suddenly Hernandez appears, coming to the child's side and grabbing his wrist.

Hernandez tells the boy, “Let's go,” as he tries to take him away.

But the family member sees what is happening and immediately intervenes, snatching the boy from Hernandez and notifying the police.

Investigators reviewed surveillance footage, using advanced technology to quickly identify Hernandez, and showed up at his home an hour later to drag him away in handcuffs.

Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno issued this statement: “What this criminal did is incredibly disturbing. I never want anyone in Lee County to feel unsafe, especially on a simple shopping trip. My team will not stop until NOTHING to ensure that criminals like this face the consequences of their actions.”
