Surveillance from KOP Mall alleged kidnapping released

- New surveillance video of the King of Prussia Mall alleged kidnapping incident has been released by the Upper Merion Police Department.

Cherie Amoore is accused of taking a seven-week-old baby boy from his mother in the mall’s food court on March 31.

A Montgomery County judge ruled the 7-1/2 minute surveillance video should not be sealed. Amoore’s defense had argued the added media coverage could influence potential jurors.

The video apparently shows Amoore meeting the baby’s mother, who had the carriage, in the mall. Police say Amoore was wearing a white shirt. She and the mother sit down at the food court. Then, the video reportedly traces Amoore leaving with the baby, from the food court, the stairs, the exit and the parking lot.

The charges against Amoore include felony kidnapping and unlawful restraint.

Amoore has been out on bail.

She waived her formal arraignment that had been scheduled for June 22. Her next court date has not been scheduled.
