CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -A Conway woman is shaken up, but doing well, after she was held at gunpoint in broad daylight while her newborn was in the backseat of her car Friday at a local Walmart.
Police believe the situation could have been a lot worse had it not been for the mother's quick thinking.
"I felt like I was in a movie. It was just surreal," described Candace Dunwoody of Conway. She is holding her kids a little closer these days, after her first shopping trip with her newborn took a dangerous turn. "She was getting fussy, she wanted to eat so the checkers were helping me get out fast."
Dunwoody said she put the baby in the backseat for a moment while she finished putting groceries in the trunk. That's when she went to the backseat to feed her, but before she could get in, she was approached by a man with a gun.
