The alleged incident occurred at a store in Crockett, Texas, which is near Houston. The two women were reportedly on the self-checkout line last week. The mother—who was with her baby and one-year-old—told police that the woman commented on her son’s blonde hair and blue eyes and asked how much he costs, KETK.com reported.

The report, citing the affidavit, said the mother laughed off the comment, but the woman allegedly said she had $250,000 in her car. The mom claimed another woman was with Taylor at one point. The mother said she alerted authorities. 

The KETK report said the mother waited for the two women to leave the store, but they allegedly waited in the parking lot and screamed at her that the offer was now $500,000. The women eventually left, the report said. 

Police said in the affidavit they watched video from the scene and it appeared to match the mother’s claim, the report said.
