Ottawa police say a Quebec

woman has been charged in the alleged abduction of an eight-day-old baby. Police say the incident took place Sunday afternoon, when the woman allegedly broke into a west-end home, used bear spray on the occupants and took off with the child. They say a neighbour was able to detain them nearby until police arrived. Police say the newborn wasn't hurt. Investigat­ors say the accused, a 32-year-old woman, had previously been in contact with the child's mother on social media through a group for new mothers, and had even brought a gift to the home last Friday. They believe she may have been in touch with other new mothers through such groups. The suspect is charged with abduction of a person under 14, administer­ing a noxious substance, break and enter, and other offences.
