Tulsa Police Find Babies Abducted In Stolen Truck
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa police have located two children who were abducted in a truck theft Friday evening.
Police found 5-month-old Zayveah Brown at a home in the 2400 block of East Newton Street. The other child, 1-year-old Sariah Brown, was found at St. Francis Xavier Church in the 2400 block of East Admiral.
Sergeant John Adams said the first girl was found when someone at the East Newton home heard a loud kick at their door. They went outside to discover the 5-month-old infant.
"They took the 5-month old in, immediately recognized the clothes from the news stories and called us," Adams said.
Two church youth members discovered the 1-year-old outside the Catholic Church. She was left in her car seat in some bushes, crying.
Both girls are okay.
The truck was stolen from outside an East Tulsa apartment complex.
The parents were outside the Shoreline Apartments 21st and Mingo unloading the vehicle when someone they'd never seen before jumped into the pickup and drove off. They ran after him screaming "Our babies are inside," trying to get the driver to stop, but he kept going.
Police have not located a 2004, dark blue, four-door, Ford F-150. The truck bears an Oklahoma tag, 212BNE.
The girls' mother spoke to reporter Emily Baucum earlier in the night, terrified for her girls' lives.
"That's the only thing I'm thinking about," Tiama Brown said. "We just bought the truck. I don't care about the truck; I just want my kids."
The suspect is described as a short, heavy-set Hispanic male wearing a gray jumpsuit.
