Caught on Camera: Suspect abducts 3-month-old from SJ home while grandmother was unloading groceries, police say

SAN JOSE, California — The suspect, who was caught on video abducting a boy from his San Jose apartment, abducted the child while his grandmother was unloading groceries, police said in a news conference on Monday.

Police say the boy’s grandmother, who had been watching him while his mother was at work, called around 1 p.m. to report that the child had been kidnapped. She is said to have taken three-month-old Brandon Cuellar into a bedroom as she was unloading groceries from her car. According to the police, the infant was kidnapped and disappeared within minutes.

Officials say the grandmother did not see the suspect enter the apartment.

SJPD says the child’s father is detained and not in the picture.

Police say Amber Alert was not called due to a lack of suspicious vehicle information. The FBI Child Abduction Response Team is now involved in the investigation and all resources are being used to find Cuellar.

“Today someone is walking around with a child that they didn’t have yesterday,” SJPD Sgt. Christian Camarillo said.

A cash reward is offered in return for the child.

SJPD tweeted pictures of the suspect. They say the male suspect entered an apartment on the 1000 block of Elm Street and left with the infant in the carrier.

The suspect is said to have short hair and is wearing a gray baseball cap and black face mask, with black pants and a dark blue shirt. The family tells the police that they do not recognize the suspect.

Officials say the 3-month-old’s name is Brandon Cuellar and he’s wearing a white long-sleeved onesie with dinosaurs on it. The baby carrier is black with a white cover.

Anyone with information is asked to call SJPD at 408-277-4166 or 911.
