Kidnapping Attempt Thwarted

Fort Hood authorities were searching for a woman who attempted to kidnap a newborn infant from Darnall Army Community Hospital.
The abduction was thwarted by the hospital’s infant abduction warning alarm and staff responding to a report of suspicious activity on the Mother-Baby Ward, according to a press release from Darnall.

The Army has released a photo of a woman it is interested in talking to.

The hospital was locked down and all exits were blocked while the hospital staff, security guards and special agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command checked the identification of everyone in the hospital, according to the release. Source: Temple Daily Telegram

If this suspect's not identified it's likely that she'll keep trying. Women who attempt this type of crime are driven by strong psychological motivations. Hospital staff should remain vigilant.
