A North Charleston family now has some relief after their infant child was returned to them Tuesday night after being abducted on Monday. North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor explains what happened on Monday when 1-month-old Angel Miguel Perez was abducted at a North Charleston Post Office: “Ms. Walker, the suspect, visually observed the victim and her child. From that point is appears that Walker began following the victim, and we know that when the victim arrived at the post office, the suspect saw the opportunity where the victim exiting the vehicle without her child,” says Pryor.
It was then when 19-year-old Andrea Samone Walker of Goose Creek took the child out of the carseat and fled the scene.
Tuesday night the North Charleston Police Department received calls with the exact description of Walker.
“Following up on those calls, one of the callers provided us a possible location of the suspect and the infant child. Now, police responded to the Grove Apartment complex. Once at the complex police found the infant child inside the apartment, he was unharmed. The suspect, Walker, was also located with the child and taken into custody,” says Pryor.
Pryor says the investigation is ongoing, but as of now, Walker is arrested and charged with kidnapping. No word if the mother of the baby will be charged for leaving the infant in the car.
