Police Blotter: Woman Suspects Dog-Napping; Mom Fears Kidnapping; ATM 'Emergency'
The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department
A woman at Whitney Road apartment told police a woman tried to take her daughter out of the car about 9 p.m. June 5.
An investigation showed it probably was not actually an abduction attempt, though.
A report said the mom was in the process of moving out of the apartment when a woman pushing a stroller and talking to herself went over to the car and opened the door.
The mom yelled at her, and the woman responded that the baby was cold and needed a blanket.
She then walked away. She didn't touch the child, the report said.
Well, it Seemed Like an Emergency

The owner told police she thinks they actually had her dog.
The pup was wearing a pink collar and had blue painted toenails.
The animal warden later said the dog was sighted near the turnpike.
