Update: Stranger Grabs Child At Grocery Store

More Video...

Police continue to investigate an incident at Baker's.

It happened November 21st, Thaddeus Marcano and his kids were Thanksgiving shopping. Marcano said he was on the phone monitoring what his kids were putting in the basket, when he overheard a man say something to his children.

"It caught my attention, I turned around and he had her by the arm and the shoulder," said Marcano.

Little Isabella and her sister Sophia remember the moment well, but what is worse is what the man said to them.

"He says, hey little girls you are coming home with me for dinner, I mean thanksgiving, and I am not having turkey for dinner," recalls Sophia.

Outraged, Marcano says he did what any parent would do -- pulling the man off his child, then yelling for help.

The man left the store, but not before Marcano managed to get a few pictures of him, his car and the license plate on his car.

Police tracked the man to his home and spoke to him.

"I am more angry as more time goes by, I just don't understand in my mind what he was doing, no business to have his hand on my daughter.," said Marcano.

So far no arrests. Police are in the process of viewing the surveillance video.
