A woman who allegedly tried to kidnap a baby from a Garden Grove hospital told police that she was trying to convince her estranged husband that she had been pregnant and had given birth, officials said.
Wearing scrubs and a visitor pass, Grisel Ramirez, 48, of Garden Grove allegedly walked into a room in the maternity ward of Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center early Monday and attempted to kidnap a newborn girl, police said.
She “tells the mother, ‘Hey, why don’t you take a shower before your family gets here?’” Garden Grove police Lt. Jeff Nightengale said. While the mother was distracted, Ramirez placed the baby in a tote bag and attempted to leave the floor, Nightengale added.
An alarm triggered by a tag on the baby’s ankle alerted hospital staff to the attempted kidnapping. As a result, a doctor stopped Ramirez at the doors and returned the baby safely to her mother, police said.
Despite being separated for months, Ramirez told her husband that she was pregnant with a girl, officials said. When the due date passed, she needed to produce a baby, police said Ramirez told them.
“He thought she was really pregnant,” Nightengale said. “Obviously, he didn’t have any idea that she was going to kidnap a child.”
Ramirez has also been linked to reports of a suspicious woman seen in an Anaheim hospital asking expecting mothers the sex and due date of their baby, police said.
One of the mothers approached by the woman called Anaheim police, who in turn issued a warning to local hospitals, officials said.
By late Tuesday afternoon, police were not aware of any other hospitals where Ramirez might have gone to.
