A man who believed he was the father of a newborn girl was shocked to learn his estranged wife had faked the pregnancy and snatched an infant from a hospital in an effort to continue the ruse, police said.
Grisel Ramirez, 48, is accused of posing as a visitor to enter Garden Grove Medical Center, where she attempted to abduct a baby Monday, Lt. Jeff Nightengale said Tuesday.
She remained held without bail and was due for arraignment Wednesday. Authorities have not yet filed any charges.
The husband had no idea she wasn't pregnant, Nightengale said.
