Manila City Hall offers P100,000 reward for arrest of fake nurse who stole newborn baby at Ospital ng Maynila
(SPOT.ph) Police are looking for the woman who posed as a nurse and stole a newborn baby from a 17-year-old mother at Ospital ng Maynila last week, reports Inquirer.net.
The Manila City Hall has offered a P100,000 reward for the arrest of the woman, reports ABS-CBN News. According to an artist’s sketch, the fake nurse is in her early 20s, about five feet tall, has a heavy build and fair skin.
Similar incidents have been reported in Manila and the babies were being stolen so that they could be sold, according to Chief Inspector Anita Araullo of the Manila Police District Women’s and Children’s Protection Desk. "We are not yet sure where these kidnappers sell the stolen babies... Most of the babies (have been) recovered but newborn infants are more difficult to locate," Inquirer.net quoted her as saying.
Araullo told Inquirer.net that the victimized mothers did not have anybody watching over them in the hospital.
Four other babies have been reported kidnapped in the city according to the Manila Police District. One of these babies was stolen last month at Ospital ng Sampaloc, reports Inquirer.net.
