Mother Arrested After Allegedly Kidnapping Children in Abington

Two children who were kidnapped by their mother in Abington, MASS. after she forced her way into an apartment Thursday have been found safe on Cape Cod.


Abington police say the mother of the children is a suspect in a parental kidnapping that occurred in the town of Abington.

Bruno Coelho told police Bruna Gomes, the mother of his children, arrived at 94 Walnut St. at 9 a.m., knocked on the door, and said, “Abington police open the door.”

Gomes, 33, sprayed pepper spray into Coelho’s eyes, forced her way inside and took her 7-year-old daughter, Nathalia Coelho, and 8-year-old son, Nathan Coelho, police said.

An Amber Alert had been issued because Abington police said they were concerned for the health and welfare of the children.

The children were later found at a hotel in West Yarmouth, and Gomes was taken into custody.
