Around 5:30 p.m. Thursday on Olive View Drive, Angela Doroteo is suspected of taking two children from their foster mother when she took them to a doctor at Olive View Medical Center. Doroteo, the birth mother of both children, lost both children’s parental rights for currently unknown reasons.
She was accompanied by an unknown man when she assaulted the foster mother and took both children in the car – a 4-year-old girl and a 7-year-old girl. They allegedly pushed the foster mother to the ground before putting the children in a dark gray Chevy Malibu.
Authorities found the car nearby shortly afterwards, but both the suspect and the children were gone.
