ALINE, Okla. -- An Oklahoma mother said that two women posed as workers with the Department of Human Services and tried to kidnap her 2-year-old daughter.
The woman, who lives in Aline, Okla., but asked that her identity remain secret, said that what happened to her on Tuesday seemed real, but she didn't fall for it.
She said the women told her they were investigating a child abuse complaint and that they had a court order to take custody of the girl.
"I was hysterical," she said. "I thought they were going to take my kids because I thought it was the Department of Human Services."
She said the women told them she was in trouble because of bruising seen on one of her other children.
"They said they had allegations that one of my children had been abused and there were some other allegations and they needed to come inside," she said.
She said she didn't let them in, but the women knocked again a few minutes later. She said they told her they had a court order and one of the women tried to grab her daughter.
"She tried taking off with her and got off the porch," she said. "When I got to her, I basically slapped her in the face and pulled my daughter out of her hands. I went to the door and told them they need to come back with the police."
The woman said she called DHS and the Alfalfa County Sheriff's Department, which confirmed that they had not been asked to remove a child from a home. Officials said they have opened an investigation into the incident.
