"I just caught this lady in my backyard trying to snatch my little boy," the man says.

"The police are on the way and they told me I can detain you.

" The kids overheard what you were asking my son and you are trying to snatch him barefoot".

The woman denies the allegation claiming she "knows the truth". She then appears to become disoriented, asking the man what the date is.

The father of the boy filmed the encounter.
