Accused Kidnappers Expected to Face Judge Monday

Two juvenile suspects that allegedly kidnapped a Levelland baby will go before a Hockley County judge Monday afternoon. 

NewsChannel 11 first broke the story Thursday night shortly after an Amber Alert for 3-month-old Saydi Brooklyn Mendez was issued. Police say Baby Saydi was taken from her mother's car after she ran inside her home for a few minutes. Police found the baby safe and sound an hour and a half later inside a car in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Levelland.

A 15-year-old female suspect and a 16-year-old male suspect were found inside the Wal-Mart and arrested. Baby Saydi's mom tells us the 15-year-old suspect and her were acquaintances but police have still not been able to pinpoint a motive for the kidnapping. The two juveniles will appear before a judge in the Hockley County courthouse at 1 p.m. Monday afternoon.  They could face kidnapping charges. NewsChannel 11 will bring you the latest information as it becomes available to us.

This isn't the first time an infant has been taken right from under a parents nose here locally. Stephanie Jones was charged with kidnapping and abandoning a child. She is accused of taking baby Priscilla Maldonado from her home last June. Jones reportedly posed as a UMC nurse to gain the family's trust. The baby was found under a North Lubbock carport a few days later. Jones trial has been postponed three different times. 

Rayshaun Parson is also accused of kidnapping a newborn baby from Covenant Hospital on March 10th. Parson allegedly cut the security device off of baby Mychael and took him to Clovis, New Mexico. Parson was indicted in March for kidnapping. Her attorney says she plans to use an insanity defense in her upcoming trial if convicted, she could face up to 20 years in prison. There is no word on when the trial will take place.
