Woman accused of attempted kidnapping appears in court

LISBON — A woman accused of attempting to snatch a 1-year-old Wellsville boy in May appeared in County Municipal Court on a single charge of child enticement.

A June 21 pretrial was set for Jasmine D. Richardson, 32, Clark Avenue, Wellsville, charged with child enticement for allegedly attempting to take the child right off a Broadway porch in Wellsville on May 27.

According to court records, the boy’s mother, Samantha Jones, told police she heard Richardson tell her child “Come here baby,” and then heard her child start to scream. When she came around from beside the house to the front porch, Jones said she saw Richardson holding her son in her arms. When she was confronted, Richardson reportedly put the child down and ran down Broadway. Her bond is set at $10,000 cash or surety.
