A 46-year-old Pittsburgh woman is facing charges after allegedly kidnapping a 3-month-old baby in an elaborate scheme.
After hours of questioning, Yvonne Bradley walked out of the Uniontown State Police barracks in handcuffs. Channel 11's Cara Sapida reported that Bradley was hunched over crying and said, "I was only taking him for a walk."
Bradley was arraigned Tuesday afternoon on three felony counts -- kidnapping, unlawful restraint and interfering with custody of a child. She was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, which is a misdemeanor offense.
The child's mother told authorities that she traveled to Uniontown so Bradley would photograph the child. The mother said she spent the night with Bradley at the Heritage Inn, and was supposed to have her child photographed on Tuesday. Investigators said Bradley told the mom that the photos would appear in advertisements for Walmart.
Police said Bradley told the child's mother to go get supplies for the photo shoot while she watched the baby. When the mother returned, police said, Bradley and the baby were gone.
Bradley was found hours later with the baby in Uniontown. The child was unharmed.
In a statement that she gave to police, Bradley said that she recently had a miscarriage, and was looking to give her love to another child. In court, the sobbing suspect said, "I don't go around kidnapping other people's children. ... I just wanted to hold him. That's all."
Bradley's preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 17.
