According to police, three armed men took $2,400 from the mother of two young children and demanded more cash, according to an officer's affidavit. They then pistol-whipped the victim, kidnapped her 15-month-old daughter in her car seat and drove off in a white SUV.

A brief police chase on southbound Interstate 75 ended in Springfield Township when the three suspects and their driver bailed out on Witherby Avenue. One of the four suspects, Anquan Williams, 19, was arrested early Sept. 26 and charged with kidnapping and aggravated burglary. The other three suspects remain at-large.
