An Ohio woman is accused of attempting to lure a 4-year-old boy away from his home and posing as a child protective services investigator when confronted.
Lisa Nacrelli, 44, was hit with criminal child enticement, burglary, and impersonating an officer, according to the Norwood Police Department.
Home surveillance footage captured the moment that Nacrelli approached a 4-year-old boy. Nacrelli is seen on video touching the child.
Video shows the boy sitting on his orange bicycle when a woman approaches him just feet outside his home in a Cincinnati suburb.
The boy asks the woman, “Who are you?”
The woman is seen on video running her hand through the boy’s hair.
The New York Post reported, “The boy’s parents claim Nacrelli asked their son to come home with her at least three times and told the boy she had a ‘really pretty car seat’ for him inside her car.”
The child’s father said the woman was “talking to him and rubbing him,” according to the affidavit.
The outlet added, “After nearly 3 minutes of being inappropriately stroked by the stranger, the boy hops off his bike, throws his hands up, and retreats to the house, stating that he has to go get his mother.”
The father said that he had taught his son about “stranger danger.”
“She had made my 4-year-old son uncomfortable to where he said ‘I want to go get my mom,’” the father said in an affidavit.
When the boy’s mother confronted the woman, Narcelli allegedly claimed she was with child protective services to do an inspection.
“She shows me a badge that says her name,” Jaimie Spradlin told WCPO-TV. “She proceeds to rattle off my children’s names.”
“Your intention was clearly to take my son, to convince him to walk down the street with you to this house, which I didn’t even know you lived this close which is terrifying in of itself,” Spradlin said of Nacrelli — who lives just one block over from the family.
However, the family became suspicious when Nacrelli left without leaving any contact information after being in the Spradlin’s home.
The family contacted police after reviewing the video of Narcelli touching their son.
In a handwritten statement, Nacrelli reportedly claimed that she had been intoxicated during the encounter.
“I had been drinking since I woke up that morning,” Narcelli wrote in the affidavit filed on Monday in Hamilton County Municipal Court. “I walked to Kroger to get more beer on the walk home I saw a young child that I felt wasn’t being supervised so in an attempt to scare the parent, I pretended to be from CPS.”
Court TV reported, “Nacrelli has been arrested before. Court documents show she’s been charged with disorderly conduct in 2005 after she ‘recklessly caused harm to another while intoxicated’ and disorderly conduct because of public intoxication in 2011.”
Nacrelli has reportedly not entered a plea and is being held in the Hamilton County jail on a $10,000 bond. The judge also instructed Narcelli to have no contact with the boy and to wear an electronic monitoring device.
