A three month old baby has been reunited with her parents after being kidnapped by a man at Riverfront Park in Little Rock, Arkansas. There are not many details on how the man acquired the baby at the park. However, it’s what he did with the baby after he kidnapped her that has the community shocked.
According to employees at Popeyes, a heavyset man, 45 year old Henry Osterman, entered the restaurant on Monday around 2:30 PM with a baby wrapped in a blanket. He seemed a bit nervous, and told the employee at the cash register that he had the munchies as he ordered 15 Popeyes chicken sandwiches. According to reports, when the cashier gave him his total, he handed over the baby to her. “I look to him and said ‘Whatcu think I’m gonna do with that,'” said Chandra Wilkins head cashier at the Little Rock Popeyes. “He told me he didn’t have any money but I could take the baby. I said ‘Foo you need to back the f*ck up’. Then that’s when he threw the baby at me, ran behind the cash registers and grabbed every sandwich on the food warmer. That man was crazy.”
Two other employees stepped into action and tackled the would be chicken thief. Unfortunately, the size of the man was too much for the employees to take down the kidnapper. That’s when eyewitnesses say a third employee, Todd Williams, clotheslined the man with a broom handle and took him down to the ground. “That was a big dude,” said Williams. “I grabbed the broom, swung at real real hard, and crack that punk in the neck. He fell and hit his head on the floor, knocked him clean out. My aim’s on fleek.”
Police searched Osterman’s 1972 cargo van that was parked in the Popeyes parking lot where they discovered another infant strapped into a car seat, approximately 6 months old. They also recovered several firearms, knives and a neatly displayed collection of baby toys, bottles and other baby related items. They also recovered several roles of duct tape, rope and 20 bottles of Benadryl. Osterman was taken into custody and charged with kidnapping, assault, theft and child endangerment. He is currently being held on an $800 bond.
