Home invader tries to kidnap infant

June 24, 2010

Police say a woman with a gun forced her way into a western Indiana home and then stabbed a husband and wife in an apparent attempt to kidnap their newborn boy. The man was able to stop the attack and call police to the home in the Vigo County community of Prairie Creek on Wednesday. Sheriff Jon Marvel says 34-year-old Stephanie Foster didn't know the couple she attacked. He said investigators believe Foster was faking a pregnancy and looking for a baby. She was jailed on preliminary charges of attempted murder and kidnapping. The victims were treated for knife wounds at the hospital.
