HESPERIA – A mother was arrested after attempting to kidnap her 3-month-old child from foster care on Wednesday afternoon.
At around 3:42 p.m. deputies from the Hesperia Station responded to the 16300 block of Main Street in the City of Hesperia. When they arrived they learned that the mother of the child 28-year-old Karena Jackson-Brown of San Bernardino and the grandmother of the child, 54-year-old Mariah Jackson of Hesperia had attempted to take the child during a supervised visit. Jackson-Brown fled with her infant toward the door and with the aid of her mother, the infant’s grandmother exited the New Beginning foster care facility.
With the infant, Jackson-Brown got into the passenger’s side of the vehicle while her mother, Mariah Jackson got into the driver’s seat and attempted to leave. The staff was able to stop the vehicle from leaving the parking lot and Jackson-Brown desperate to get away with the child fled on foot with the infant.
“When a failed attempt to cross the road occurred, Jackson-Brown walked back toward the facility,” said Hesperia Sheriff’s Station spokeswoman Jackie Chambers said in a news release. “Staff members confronted Jackson-Brown and attempted to regain custody of the infant. During this time Jackson-Brown stated swinging her body back and forth.”
No visible injuries were caused to the infant, but medical personnel was requested and the infant was transported to the hospital as a precaution. Both Karena Jackson Brown and her mother, Mariah Jackson are being charged with kidnapping and cruelty to a child.For late-breaking news, follow 24/7 Headline News on our Los Angeles County Facebook group, Riverside County Facebook group, Coachella Valley News group, US News group, Victor Valley/Inland Empire Facebook group.
