Coordinated police work led to the safe return of a two-month-old boy who was briefly kidnapped on the evening of Sept. 19.

On Sept. 19 at 6:33 p.m., New Garden Police responded to a home in the 9100 block of Gap-Newport Pike for a report of a domestic-related kidnapping. The 18-year-old mother of the infant told police that she had left the home she had shared with her ex-boyfriend that morning in Newport, Del. She said that her relationship with Domingo Flores-Pajaro had deteriorated over the past few months and that she had moved back home with her mother in New Garden Township.

Flores-Pajaro came to the home in the late afternoon of Sept. 19, forced his way inside, took the infant boy from the arms of his grandmother and left, driving towards Delaware.

New Garden Police alerted Delaware police, the Chester County District Attorney's Office and the Chester County Detectives, and asked for their help in the investigation.

Just after 9 p.m. on Sept. 19, law enforcement officers coordinated the child's return, with the cooperation of Flores-Parajo, who returned to the crime scene and was taken into custody without incident.

He was arraigned on charges of robbery, burglary, simple assault, reckless endangering, theft, receiving stolen property and harassmen,t and taken to Chester County Prison in lieu of $15,000 cash bail.

Chief Simpson of the New Garden Police said he is "extremely grateful to our colleagues in the Chester County District Attorney's Office and Detectives Office. The collaborative actions and dedication of these law enforement professionals are the reason this family is reunited, safe and sound."
