A CCTV footage in a shopping centre showed shocking images of a man leading a toddler away from its mother in the busy mall.
The young family can be seen in the footage walking through the shopping centre in Derby, East Midlands.
At one point, the yet-to-be identified mother walks very slightly ahead of her child.
The man then approaches the 22-month-old as he follows his mother into a store in the city’s Intu shopping centre.
