Surrey woman arrested for abduction of baby
Sarah June Maryskag from Surrey has been remanded in custody following the abduction of a 4 month old baby boy. At approximately 8:30 pm, July 10, 2013, two women left a Surrey apartment following dinner with a friend. One of the women, the mother of the baby, was pushing a stroller while the Maryskag carried the infant.
She boarded an elevator of the apartment with the doors shutting before the mother could get on.
The mother went to the apartment lobby on a second elevator, but the woman and the baby had left prior to her arrival and were not in sight.
Enlisting the help of her friend, the mother ran to the King George SkyTrain station where she advised a SkyTrain Attendant and Transit Police were called.
The friend spotted a security guard at the nearby Sprott Shaw College who, following a search of the area, located the woman and the baby in front of the college. Transit Police arrived and took the woman into custody, returning the baby to the mother.
Maryskag, 34, was arrested and charged with Abduction of a Child under 14 Years. She is is well known to police who have requested a psychiatric evaluation. She is scheduled for her next court appearance today, July 17, 2013, in Surrey.
