Woman kidnaps baby
A 2-month-old baby was kidnapped at Ephraimszegen around 11 a.m. on Monday. The baby’s mother told Times of Suriname that she was home when a woman appeared at her house and asked for some water. The mother gave the stranger some water before going to the store for ten minutes. Before she left the house, she asked one of her brother-in-laws to look after the baby. When she left the house the woman was still outside. When she returned home, she could not find her baby. The visitor had also vanished. A neighbor told her that she had seen a woman getting into a car with the baby. It is suspected that the woman had hitched a ride. The perpetrator also took a bag with baby stuff and money. The mother told Times of Suriname that she takes a taxi to go look for her baby when she receives messages of her baby being seen. She had gone to Latour and to the Dr S Kafiluddistraat on Monday but did not find her baby. “I have to pay a taxi every time I go looking for my baby. I don’t know what else to do. I have already notified the police of the kidnapping,” said the mother who added that the perpetrator was not from her neighborhood. Sources told Times of Suriname that taxi drivers have gone to the police to share information about the kidnapping. The first taxi driver told the police that he dropped the woman and the baby off along the Coesewijnestraat. The second taxi driver told the police that he picked her up along the Coesewijnestraat and that he dropped both people off at the corner of the Johan Adolf Pengeland the Kafiluddistraat.
