Denham Town police officers are now scouring security footage in an attempt to quickly rescue a newborn who was stolen from the Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston on Wednesday morning.
The news group understands that about 4:30 am, the child's mother went to the bathroom to freshen up, leaving the baby on the bed, but on her return, her newborn baby was missing. An alarm was immediately raised.
"Personnel from the hospital and Denham Town Police are meeting to deal with the abduction. We will have an update as soon as possible for the media," a representative of the Corporate Communications Unit told the news group reporter Claude Mills.
This is the second such abduction of a baby in less than a week. Last week, Walton Evans, 41, and Latoya White 34, the parents of three-week-old, Vernesha Evans, were distraught when their child was snatched from them at the Cornwall Regional Hospital. The police acted quickly and recovered the baby two days later.
