Women attempt to kidnap baby in Santa Maria

March 30, 2016

Police carTwo women allegedly attempted to take an 11-month-old child on Tuesday from a cart at the FoodMaxx grocery store on Broadway in Santa Maria.

The child’s aunt strapped her niece in the cart’s child seat and walked about four feet to a fruit display. As one of the alleged kidnappers was attempting to remove the child from the cart, the child moaned and the aunt turned around.

The aunt then confronted the women, one of whom was holding onto the infant. The alleged kidnapper then set the infant down and the two women quickly left the store.

Both suspects are described as Hispanic woman in their 40’s, and are about 5 feet 3 inches tall.

    “Anyone who kidnaps someone is to be put to death, whether the victim has been sold or is still in the kidnapper’s possession.” (Exodus 21:16)

    Therefore under the Christian Hebrew God’s word above, if these two women were successful in their kidnapping of this child and then caught, then the above passage would have to be upheld if we’re truly a Christian Nation. “But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.” (Acts 5:29)

    It’s very simple, as a Christian, you either follow all of the bible as Yahweh god intended, or you become a hypocrite to the word, and we all know what Jesus thought about hypocrites! Tell me if you’ve heard this adage before; “you can’t have your cake and eat it too?”

    Christians, remember this, our Christian Yahweh god does not like “cherry pickers” of His word, but those that eat the entire cherry pie. (Tedism #198-4)

    I would hope the store has video? The description describes 99% of 40 year old Latinos.

    Before my daughter was born, there were robbers who were targeting Hispanic, immigrant women with babies, using the baby as hostage until mom found and emptied an ATM.
