A Florida mom is behind bars after she left her child home alone early Tuesday morning and went to a neighbor’s home, where she tried to kidnap the neighbor’s child, WFLA reports.
St Petersburg Police Department detectives said that Hannah Braun, 28, left her home at 2 a.m. and went to a neighbor’s home, where she opened the front door and tried to take a child out of the neighbor’s arms.
