A man tried to buy a 7-year-old girl from her grandmother at a Kroger in Georgia for $200, police said.
Einodd Samimi of Marietta made the offer Monday night while following a woman and her grandchild around the store, Cobb police spokeswoman Sarah O’Hara said.
Samimi made “inappropriate comments about the child,” the woman told police. “The grandmother stated during an interview with detectives that at one point the male asked to purchase the child for $200,” O’Hara said. “The grandmother confronted the male when he asked to purchase her granddaughter at the Kroger,” O’Hara said, “and a ‘large crowd’ of shoppers chased the male through the store and to his vehicle.”
Samimi was arrested Tuesday and is charged with enticing a child and criminal solicitation.
