Police launched a manhunt this afternoon after the 28-year-old allegedly approached three different people in Manchester city centre offering to give up the child.
The man has been arrested after allegedly trying to sell a three-month-old baby girl to strangers for up to £1,000.
The alleged incident took place just after 2.30pm at.....
Barton Arcade when the man was said to have approached a stranger and asked if he wanted to buy the child.
He reportedly then continued along the street, where he asked two more people the same question. One witness claimed that he had suggested the trade-off for £1,000, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Police made the arrest this evening, hours after appealing to the public for information.
Dozens of officers were scrambled to the city centre in a bid to stop the man leaving the area.
They also released an image of the man pushing the pram outside a nearby William Hill shop.
He is now being held in custody on suspicion of child neglect. Police said the young girl is safe and well.
