BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — A state parole officer and her boyfriend kidnapped a 1-year-old boy from his Stratford mother, telling the 17-year-old she was too young to be a mother, according to the Connecticut Post.

Police persuaded the parole officer to return the child, whom she apparently wanted to adopt, the Post said.

Gladys Marquez, 51, the parole officer, was charged with home invasion and second-degree kidnapping, and her boyfriend, Edgardo Soberal, 52, a retired parole officer, was charged with conspiracy to commit home invasion and second-degree kidnapping, the Post said.

Marquez and the boy's mother are neighbors in Stratford, the Connecticut Post. The baby was snatched during a visit June 7 to the P.T. Barnum housing complex, police told the Connecticut Post.
