BREMEN, Ga. - Authorities say a 7-year-old girl recalled her stranger danger training and was able to get away from a parolee who tried to abduct her at a Walmart store in west Georgia.

Georgia authorities say 25-year-old Thomas A. Woods of Austell, Ga., tried to take the girl yesterday from a toy aisle while her mom was in a different aisle.

Security video from the store shows a man carrying the girl away, releasing her after she struggled to get away.

Woods reportedly faces a charge of attempted kidnapping and was out on parole. Police say he could face additional charges.

Woods denied being in the store, but police said "we're pretty confident we've got the right guy."

AP wire services contributed to this report.
