Baby Kidnapped by Woman Posing as Nurse

A three-day-old infant was kidnapped at a Texas hospital early Saturday by a woman posing as a medical worker, according to police. The baby was last seen at 1:20 a.m. at Covenant Lakeside Hospital in Lubbock Texas. A woman wearing blue and flower-print hospital scrubs and a gray hooded jacket walked in, took the child and escaped in a pickup truck. The woman was captured on surveillance cameras walking out of the lobby.

The suspect had apparently gone into the mother's room several times before the baby was taken, telling the mother the baby needed treatment, according to the senior vice president of Covenant Health System. The mother alerted hospital personnel that hr baby had been taken 15 minutes of the crime. The hospital reported the baby was wearing a monitoring device, which could help lead police to the infant. Interestingly, this is the second hospital abduction in Lubbock in less than a year.
