‘I feel your pain’

The Star (Jamaica) - - News The Weekend Star -

Wal­ton Evans, the St James man who was lucky to be re­u­nited with his new­born, says he is pray­ing that the par­ents whose baby was stolen at the Vic­to­ria Ju­bilee Hos­pi­tal in Kingston will find their baby.

“That gen­tle­man in Kingston who lost his baby, mi feel it for him. When me see it on the news, tears come a mi eye,” Evans said.

A Kingston cou­ple, Suzette Whyte and Sin­clair Hut­ton, had their world turned up­side down after their baby, a boy, was stolen nine hours after he was born at the Ju­bilee Hos­pi­tal.

Hos­pi­tal ad­min­is­tra­tors sus­pect that the child snatcher breached se­cu­rity and stayed on the ma­ter­nity ward of the hos­pi­tal un­til the wee hours of Wed­nes­day morn­ing be­fore steal­ing the child.

“Dem deh somet­ing just can’t gwane like that in di coun­try,” said Evans.

Evans, 41, and La­toya White 34, the par­ents of three-weekold Ver­ne­sha Evans, spent last week on ten­ter­hooks after their baby was snatched from White at the Corn­wall Re­gional

Hos­pi­tal last Fri­day. The baby was found at a home in Nor­wood, St James, on Sun­day.

The po­lice have since charges Melissa Har­riot, 26, un­em­ployed of Greens, Par­adise Nor­wood, St James, and a St Ann ad­dress, with child-steal­ing.

“She fi go a prison fi it man so she can learn some sense,” Evans said, as he re­acted to news that charges have been laid against Har­riot.
