Two charged in connection with kidnapped boy


Police have charged two people with aggravated kidnapping and plan more arrests today. This, after a one-year-old boy was grabbed from his stroller yesterday.

Manuel Recendez's mother says three men and two women took her son around 5:30pm, then fled. The boy was dropped off at Southeast Memorial Hospital by four women last night after police negotiated his release.

Detectives started talking to the suspects when they phoned the victim's family.

"The identity of one of the suspects was known by the family," said Detective Bobby Taylor with the Alvin Police Department. "Detectives were able to get on the phone with him and I think through a third party, made arrangements for the child to be dropped off at the hospital and be examined."

it is not clear why the boy was taken.
