Cleveland police have located two young children and their mother after she took them, disobeying a court order.
The children were found on Arrowhead Avenue and Child and Family Services have been contacted. With the help of U.S. Marshals, the mother was arrested.
According to officials, 23-year-old Euclid native Caryann Sewell was supposed to turn her two daughters over to the Cuyahoga County Division of Children and Family Services but instead took them from a daycare center in violation of an order. The children have been identified as 2-year-old Tamani McCalla and 4-year-old Talisha McCalla, and Sewell claimed they are no longer with her and are instead “out of town.”
However, Fairview Park police say they located Sewell and the children in the city Wednesday after Sewell apparently left the girls alone in a car for an hour. Officers were able to positively identify her and find numerous warrants for her arrest, but as they tried to take her into custody, she apparently rammed her car into a police cruiser before fleeing the scene. She apparently ran over several curbs and even across a home lawn onto Westwood Ave., and authorities say they were forced to end the chase due to dangerous conditions. The whereabouts of Sewell and the girls are unknown at this time
