PUEBLO — The Pueblo Police Department arrested a woman who reportedly forced her 5-year-old son into the trunk of a vehicle after a bystander captured the alleged incident on camera.
The video was taken on the 1900 block of N. Norwood Avenue on Wednesday afternoon.
At around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, police announced they had found the woman and her son. "Obviously, I think anybody who looks at that video would be concerned about the welfare of that little boy... We saw what we saw in the video, but we need to look at the whole thing, that's why detectives are involved," said Sgt. Franklyn Ortega of the Pueblo Police Department.
