A man who kidnapped a six-month-old baby and left the child at a ‘baby box’ in Łódź has been released by police.
The 21-year-old snatched the child from his home in Piotrków on January 30, while the boy’s 25-year-old mother was shopping. The father of the child, aged 39, was working in the garden at the time.
After taking the baby boy, the man left him at the window of life (okno życia) in Łódź.
The kidnapper must report to police regularly, and has been ordered not to approach the mother or her home. He told officers that he had been worried about the home life of the child.
