Woman attempts to kidnap children in Stephens City

By Katie Demeria

A Stephens City woman attempted to kidnap two male children Wednesday morning.

Stephens City Police Officer Ronald A. Fox, Jr. said Jennifer Holborn, 33, approached a parked car in which a woman and her children, ages two and six, were waiting for the school bus to arrive at around 8:15 a.m.

"She assaulted the mother and then grabbed her two kids and pulled them both to her car, as if to take them somewhere," Fox said.

The victim then got out of her car and ran after Holborn to get her children back, Fox continued. Holborn let the boys go just as officials arrived on the scene.

The two women did not know each other, and Fox said officials are still investigating why Holborn decided to assault the mother and attempt to take the two boys.

Fox added that he tried to speak to Holborn, but she would not give a clear reason for her actions.

"I've never seen a case like this here," he said. "Usually, the individuals are related, and there's some reason for it."

Holborn is currently being held without bond.
