A woman was arrested Wednesday for allegedly kidnapping two young children from their father in New Orleans, officials said.
Jasmine Jackson was arrested Wednesday by the FBI, New Orleans Police Department and the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office after a joint investigation, the FBI said in a news release. Jackson allegedly abducted her two children, 2-year-old Janiya Williams and 3-year-old Jamir Williams, on Monday from their biological father, who has custody.
At the time of the abduction, Jackson had no parental rights or authorized supervision of the children, the release said.
An FBI SWAT team was deployed to the 1500 block of London Cross Road in Harvey, where Jackson was arrested. Both children were unharmed and returned to their father.
