MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two strangers approached a little girl, but a quick thinking grandma saved the day.
The woman said she was on the phone in her car while her granddaughter was playing outside in Raleigh.
She said all of a sudden her granddaughter jumped in the car and told her to lock the doors.
“She dived in the backseat of my car and said grand mama lock the door they trying to get me,” Natasha Woods told FOX13.
Then she said two people started tapping on her window.
“They just smiled they never exchanged words with me all they did was smile at me,” said Woods.
Woods described them as a Hispanic woman in a black hoodie with scars on her face and a man wearing a blue shirt and jeans.
She said she asked them what they wanted and started honking her horn.
Luckily, they weren’t armed.
"My grandbaby was in the back seat saying run them over run them over grandma."
Woods said the pair eventually left her home off Riche Avenue.
Now, she’s thankful her granddaughter decided to run off before anything bad happened.
“What if she wasn’t paying attention? What if we hadn’t train her to watch as well as pray?"
Memphis Police are investigating the incident but did not find any camera footage to provide a better description of the two people.
If you have any information that might help identify them, you are urged to call Memphis Police.
