03 - 26 - 2014 Northumberland woman faces kidnapping charges
[DI] - A 22-y/o Northampton County woman faces kidnapping and aggravated assault charges after she tried to seize a child from his bike earlier this month. With one hand cuffed, Katie Partridge of Walnutport continued to resist by kicking, yelling, biting and scratching at an officer. While officers secured a cuff to her other hand, she slipped out of the first and would only scream at the top of her lungs. Northumberland police responded to a March 18 call for theft of a bicycle, and in which a child was physically removed from his bike. The parent told police Partridge grabbed his child from the bike and began to run down the street while the childâs mother gave chase.
