The father then punched the woman and was able to get his child back.
The attempted kidnapper, who police identified as Gina A. Ricard, went to a nearby fire station and told them she tried to stop a kidnapping. Police said she matched the description of a broadcast.
The arrest affidavit said Ricard was not coherent and 'believes God told her help.'
She was arrested and charged with attempted aggravated kidnapping.
