AZUSA (CBS) — A kidnapping suspect was in custody Thursday after a local mom fought him off when he allegedly grabbed her child.

Carlos Coc, 21, was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping after he took hold of her 3-year-old child Wednesday afternoon at a shopping center on Gladstone Street, according to the Azusa Police Department.

Police say Coc grabbed the child’s arm, but the mother fought him off, and even left him with minor injuries.

He was arrested after the woman called police with the help of a nearby witness.

Investigators say Coc was drinking, but they don’t know what his intentions were.

Police say they will not release the victim’s gender or a mug shot of the suspect, who is being held on $100,000 bail. Coc is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
