KING OF PRUSSIA, PA (NBC News) New video has been released showing the kidnapping of a baby boy from a mall in Southeast Pennsylvania earlier this year.
Authorities released security video showing a woman police have identified as Cherie Amoore befriending the child’s mother at the King of Prussia Mall.
They walk together through the mall and end up in the food court.
When the baby starts to cry the suspect holds the baby. While the mother talks to someone on the phone and attends to another child, Amoore walks away.
Security cameras show Amoore walking through the mall, up a flight of stairs and out the door.
Police say the baby was found safe a few hours later at Amoore’s home after her family called police when they saw images of the suspect.
A police affidavit reveals Amoore told them she had a baby a few weeks earlier but the child died and that it felt like she was holding her son again.
Amoore is awaiting a formal arraignment later this month.
