A man is behind bars on charges of kidnapping after an incident in Old Sacramento. Police said the unidentified suspect kidnapped a young child yesterday along Second Street. Officers said the man went up to the child's mother and loudly said the child was his before he assaulted the woman and ran off with the youth.
The suspect let go of the child after running about 50 yards and he was arrested shortly thereafter. Police did not say if the suspect and the woman might have known each other.
