Police in Georgia are calling a 7-year-old girl a hero, after she managed to fight off a kidnapper who grabbed her at a Walmart in the state.

FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig has the story:

25-year-old Thomas Woods is charged with attempted kidnapping after surveillance tape caught a man grabbing 7-year-old Brittney Baxter in the toy aisle of the store in Bremen.

(Baxter) "I was screaming, kicking him and he just dropped me and ran off."

Woods is on parole from a manslaughter conviction, and denies he's the man on the tape.

(Woods) "I didn't touch anybody, didn't bother nobody.  I was never there."

Police are crediting Baxter and her parents for reinforcing self-defense lessons taught at the girl's school.

(Baxter) "When somebody's trying to get you, you try to get away.  And then go tell somebody that you trust."
