A man accused of trying to buy a woman’s 8-year-old daughter is free on bond and at home. Police arrested Hellmuth Kolb, 81, and charged him with simple battery and false imprisonment. He was short in response to questions Monday, claiming he didn’t know why he was in court. Tracy Nigh, the child’s mother, said she couldn’t believe someone approached her at Walmart and tried to buy her daughter.
She said they are devastated and shaky, and she warned parents to be on alert.
