The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

A man is to face trial charged with snatch­ing a three-week old baby from her cra­dle.

Joseph Lang, 21, of Sten­house­muir, is said to have ab­ducted the in­fant when she was just 22 days old.

He faces a sin­gle charge al­leg­ing that he “seized her from her crib”, re­mov­ing her from her home with­out ad­e­quate cloth­ing and with­out her par­ents’ con­sent, and took her to an un­known lo­ca­tion where he “did de­tain her against her will”.

The al­leged crime was at the baby’s ad­dress in Lar­bert on Oc­to­ber 20 last year.
