(LONGMONT, Colo.) — Police have released a recording of the 911 call that an expectant mother made after police say she had been stabbed and had her baby stolen by someone who lured her using a Craigslist ad for baby clothes.
“She cut me in my stomach,” the victim is heard saying on the call. “I’m afraid.”
The victim goes on to say the suspect used a knife and broken glass during the attack. Police say the woman did not know the suspect prior to answering the ad.
The victim identifies herself during the call but the Longmont Police Department redacted that portion to keep her name private. She does say she is 26 years old and seven months pregnant.
The victim is able to relay the address of the home during the call and emergency responders are heard arriving at the end of the more-than-six-minute call. Police say the suspect used the ad to lure the pregnant woman there.
She was rushed to a nearby hospital, and Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett said at a news conference Thursday afternoon she is “doing much better than they feared she’d do” and is expected to make a full recovery.
The suspect, identified in arrest records as Dynel Catrece Lane, was arrested after she and her husband arrived at the local hospital seven hours after the victim’s 911 call with the dead child, saying that she had had a miscarriage, authorities say.
Lane was scheduled to appear in court for her first hearing Thursday afternoon.
