An 18-year-old woman kidnapped a 3-month-old baby from his Jamaica home before later abandoning him outside a Brooklyn hospital, police said.
The suspected kidnapper, identified as Sharondalis Morgan, had recently befriended the child’s mother and was inside her apartment on 177th Street on Sunday about 3:40 p.m. when she took the boy, cops said. Morgan was able to grab the baby when the mother left the room, and then she fled the home.
The child was later found outside of Woodhull Medical Center in good health. It wasn’t clear how long after the woman kidnapped the boy that he was discovered at the medical facility.
Police describe the suspect as black, 5 feet 2 inches tall and 150 pounds.
