Alleged Kidnapper Strikes Women's Shelter

July 8, 2003 - Posted at 7:47 a.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.  -- Police and prosecutors are trying to figure out what charges they could file against a man who police say snatched his toddler from a Little Rock battered women's shelter.

Police say 45-year-old Mack Wolfe jumped over the four-foot fence at The Dorcas House in Little Rock and escaped Friday with Ryan David Wolfe, who turns two on July 30.

Wolfe said in a telephone interview with a local television station that the child was safe in Radford, Virginia. Wolfe told the station that he was sorry about the way things unfolded but said he had no other choice in fighting the system.

Police say they are still trying to figure out whether the boy can legally be returned to his mother, Sherri Clifford.

Little Rock police say the department wants to find the father and five others who accompanied Wolfe to the shelter.
