    FL - Deputies: Grandma Foils Abduction Of 6-Year-Old

    A 45-year-old St. Johns County woman is accused of trying to kidnap a 6-year-old from his grandmother’s porch Wednesday afternoon, but the boy's grandmother grabbed the woman and a group of people kept her from leaving until deputies arrived.

    At 5:30 p.m., sheriff’s deputies responding to a call of a kidnapping in progress in the 400 block of North McLaughlin Street found Lynda Sue Sitzler chanting Bible verses in the street. She was surrounded by several people preventing her from leaving.

    Investigators said Sitzler grabbed a boy from the porch and ran with him to her vehicle, but was stopped by the grandmother. During the struggle over the boy, deputies said Sitzler tried to burn the child with a cigarette lighter.

    According to deputies, as they tried to take her into custody, she chanted louder and tried to pull away.

    Another deputy arrived and assisted arresting Sitzler. She was charged with kidnapping and booked in the St. Johns County Jail, where she was held on $50,000 bond.

    Obviously a crazy woman. I wonder, are there any other children missing in this area.
    Congratulations to the great grandmother who was paying attention.
