Man accused of abduction
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.
