A woman is in custody for allegedly trying to snatch a 9-month-old child from a Malibu home, only to be thwarted by the child’s grandparents, who took the child back, officials said Sunday.

The suspect entered a residence in the 22100 block of Pacific Coast Highway and kidnapped the child from a living room at the location, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Information Bureau reported.

The suspect walked upstairs with the child, where the grandparents confronted the suspect and took the child back, officials said.

She fled to a nearby house. Deputies were flagged down about 5 p.m. Saturday and the woman was arrested.

The sheriff’s Malibu/Lost Hills station urged anyone with information regarding the attempted abduction to call them at 818-878-1808.
