A mother and her 1-year-old son were abducted at gunpoint in front of a Target in Memphis, Tenn., according to police.

The mother, who was not immediately identified, told Memphis police she was putting groceries away when two men jumped out of a tan-colored vehicle with the weapon and demanded cash in broad daylight. 

Both suspects forced the mother along with her young child who was in a shopping cart to drive to a nearby Regions Bank to make an $800 withdrawal from the ATM.

One of the kidnapping suspects is spotted on a Walmart security camera with a shopping cart.

The mother was forced to sit in the front of seat next to one suspect that sat in the passenger seat, while the other suspect sat in the backseat with her child, according to WREG-TV.

After the suspects pocketed the $800, the woman told Memphis police she was handed back her card and dropped off at the same Target she was abducted. 

The mother immediately ran inside to alert a Target employee. 

“It’s very shocking, can’t believe it almost,” said Callie Alt, who was shopping at the store at the time with her 3-year-old son, according to Fox 13 News.

Officials said nobody was injured in the horrific situation. No arrests have been made as of early Friday morning.

Police obtained surveillance footage from a Walmart security camera showing the two men walking around the store, as footage also showed them driving the same goldish-tan colored vehicle the mother described.

The mother said the suspects demanded she give them money at gunpoint in the parking lot while she was putting groceries in the car.
