An Oklahoma woman was arrested after she allegedly kidnapped a child from a pool in the area over the weekend.
The victim's father said the suspect was a complete stranger to their family.
Witnesses said the suspect, Jordan Canfield, coerced the 5-year-old boy to leave with her at the swimming pool by waving at him and calling him over, according to 2 News Oklahoma.
When the child’s dad realized his son was missing, he drove around to look for him.
Tulsa police say the dad spotted Canfield and his son about three blocks away from the apartments, and witnesses pointed officers in that direction, 2 News Oklahoma reported.
The father allegedly continuously yelled at Canfield, who still held hands with the child, according to 2 News Oklahoma.
When the dad called his son’s name, the boy ran to him, and Canfield took off, 2 News Oklahoma reported.
Officers located Canfield several blocks away and took her into custody without incident, according to 2 News Oklahoma.
The child’s father said he had never met Canfield before and does not know her, 2 News Oklahoma reported. Canfield now faces charges of kidnapping/child stealing, obstructing justice and marijuana possession.
