Mom says she and her son were kidnapped


DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A young mother and her 4-year-old son are recovering after allegedly being kidnapped from their Des Moines apartment and left in the cold without shoes or socks.

21-year-old Irma Mendez says a man she once dated was among the three people who broke into her apartment early Friday and forced her and her son outside.

Mendez says the men pushed them into a truck, drove around for a while, then left them in the street, barefoot and coatless.

Mendez thinks they were outside for about 45 minutes before a private security officer picked them up.

No one has been arrested so far.
