FL Man Attempts To "Buy" Woman's Daughter At Walmart Store

Police in Florida say that an 81-year-old man attempted to buy an 8-year-old girl from her mother for $200,000 at a Walmart store.

Port Orange police say Hellmuth Kolb was arrested Saturday and charged with simple battery and false imprisonment. 

According to an arrest report, Tracy Nigh was sitting with her daughter on a bench inside the Walmart when Kolb approached, asked if she was married and started bidding on her daughter.

Nigh says she got up to leave but Kolb grabbed her daughter and kissed her wrist. 

An arrest report says Nigh left with her daughter and alerted store security. 

Authorities say the exchange was caught on camera and Kolb was identified through his credit card transaction and social media, where another woman described a similar experience.
