LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say a 13-month-old girl believed to have been kidnapped from a California motel was taken by her mother’s pimp.

The City News Service reports that 35-year-old Brandon Wynn and a teenage boy were arrested Saturday for investigation of attempted murder. At a news conference Monday, sheriff’s officials said they expect additional charges including human trafficking, kidnapping, child abuse and robbery.

Someone called authorities Saturday afternoon after hearing a baby crying in a shed in Palmdale, about 35 miles northeast of Los Angeles, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Lt. Joseph Fender said. The girl appeared to be unharmed, he said.
