PERRIS (AP) — An estranged mother has been arrested after she and another woman allegedly attempted to abduct her 2-year-old son from the boy’s father.
The Press-Enterprise of Riverside reports that 23-year-old Mishay Alls and her friend, 36-year-old Amber Cochran, are accused of taking the boy late Saturday night.
Police say Alls used pepper spray to subdue the child’s father and then fled in a truck, striking and slightly injuring a family member.
The truck also hit several other cars as it sped away, according to authorities.
Authorities said the truck was spotted later in Hemet and the boy was safely returned to his father.
Riverside County sheriff’s Sgt. Sam Morovich told the paper that Alls and Cochran were booked Saturday on suspicion of kidnapping, assault and conspiracy.
