Woman charged in Greensboro kidnapping now accused in another case

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - A woman charged with kidnapping a 3-year-old girl is now accused of kidnapping another toddler.

News outlets report 22-year-old N'denezsia Lancaster, of Greensboro, is now charged with second-degree kidnapping in addition to first-degree kidnapping.

She's accused of snatching 3-year-old Ahlora Lindiment from an apartment merry-go-round last week. The girl was found safe the next day. Prosecutors say Lancaster previously took a 2-year-old girl from the same spot and returned her safely.

A judge refused to lower Lancaster's $1 million bond Monday. Lancaster's attorney, Daniel Harris, says Lancaster has bipolar disorder and requested a mental evaluation. One was set for this week.

Lancaster may appear in court Nov. 14. She's also charged with assault in another case in which she's accused of attacking a man with a box cutter.

Authorities in North Carolina say a woman accused of abducting a 3-year-old girl from a playground at an apartment complex has been arrested.

The News and Record reports authorities say 22-year-old N'deneszia Lancaster on Saturday was taken to a police station in Greensboro by someone she knows.

Greensboro Police Ron Glenn says Lancaster did not resist arrest and is being questioned. Police say Lancaster is facing a first-degree kidnapping charge in the abduction of Ahlora Lindiment.

Authorities have said Lancaster took Ahlora from the playground Wednesday. The girl's siblings ran and told an uncle that a woman had left with their sister.

The newspaper reports a pastor on Thursday found Ahlora walking near a church located about six miles from the apartment complex.

It's unclear if Lancaster has an attorney.
