Woman tries to abduct a baby.
Blog King, Mass Appeal
SHAWNEE, Kan — Rachel Youngs freaked out the other day when a woman tried to kidnap her 9-week-old baby while she shopped at Target in Shawnee, Kansas. The near-theft took place on Friday. Rachel was in the parking lot when a strange woman with a dog suddenly approached her. “I made a comment on how cute her dog was,” Rachel said. “She went around to the front of my car and made a comment about how cute my baby is. She made a comment saying, ‘yeah, I’ll trade you my dog for your baby,’ and I thought she was joking.”
Turns out, the woman was serious as hell.
As their cordial conversation progressed, Rachel let the loony chick hold her baby. The next thing you know, the sordid damsel tried to walk off with the kid. “As she’s holding my baby, she started saying weird things (like) ‘do you have a godmother?'” Rachel said.
“I said no, and she said, ‘I’d love to be your godmother, I’ll split everything 50/50.’ And I was like this is kind of weird, like, who says this to a random person?”
Rachel chased down the crazy woman who reluctantly handed over the child. At one point during their confabulation, the insane damsel said she had criminal record. “She says, just so you know, I was arrested for attempted kidnapping,” Rachel said.
“That’s when I was like, okay you know what, there’s something wrong. All of a sudden, this woman starts walking off with my daughter, and I yelled to her, I said, ‘I need my baby back!'”
Rachel eventually called the cops but they couldn’t seek an arrest because she gave the demented lady permission to carry her neonate. “They just said, ‘well, there’s nothing we can really do because you technically gave her permission to hold your baby,'” Rachel said.
“And my exact words were, ‘okay, so me giving her permission to hold my baby for a couple minutes gives her permission to take off with my child?”
What’s your take?
