Big Lake Man Charged in Pope County Kidnapping
WILLMAR -- A 22-year-old Big Lake man is charged with the abduction of a two-year-old boy in Pope County last week.
The boy's mother says she returned home from work Thursday and found her child gone.
A note written in Spanish and English asking for forgiveness for taking the boy was left behind. The mother called 9-1-1 and an Amber Alert was issued for the child.
A homeowner in Zion Township discovered the boy in her garage late Thursday night.
The suspect, Victor Ramirez, was arrested outside his home just after 11 pm Thursday following a brief struggle.
The boy's mother had told authorities that she knew Ramirez and that he was fond of her son--frequently buying things for him and taking photos with him.
