Quick-thinking Good Samaritans and a fiercely protective mother prevented an attempted child abduction in Longview Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Longview Police Department, the mother was at the Amtrak station so her 2-year-old son could watch the trains. While there, a female suspect tried to abduct the child.

The mother and several Good Samaritans prevented the abduction and were able to hold the suspect at the station until the police arrived.

The child was unhurt, but the mother did have some slight injuries and drove herself to the hospital for treatment.

The suspect, whose identity has not been released, was arrested and taken to the Gregg County Jail.

Goes to prove, do not mess with us mothers, because we will become your worst nightmare if you mess with our children!
