ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police accuse a New Hampshire woman of kidnapping a man's baby girl from his vehicle after he stopped and offered her a ride.
Police say the man was driving in Rochester on Saturday when he saw the woman walking in the road. Police say he offered her a ride and she accepted.
Rochester Capt. Jason Thomas says that within moments, the woman began unbuckling the 1-year-old in the back seat, saying she was going to take her.
Thomas says there was a struggle and the woman fled with the baby. Police say the father caught up with her and the woman punched the 52-year-old man before he got his daughter back.
Twenty-five-year-old Joanne Shaw, of Gonic, is scheduled for arraignment Monday. It wasn't immediately known if she has a lawyer.
