Police in Memphis, Tenn., are searching for two suspects accused of abducting a mother and her 1-year-old from a Target parking lot while the mom was loading groceries into her vehicle.

According to a statement from Memphis police, the incident took place on Wednesday at 12 p.m. in the lot of the Target at 7989 Highway 64. The suspects have since released the mother and child.

The suspects allegedly approached the victims "armed with a handgun," the statement says. Police allege that after forcing the victims into their vehicle, the suspects drove off and forced the mother to withdraw $800 from an ATM before letting the woman and her child go free.
