GREAT NECK - A Great Neck housekeeper has been arrested after allegedly kidnapping her employer's 5-month-old baby, according to authorities.

Police say Gloria Suarez had been fired over the weekend for poor performance, but was allowed to continue living at her former employer's Allenwood Road home until she could relocate.

Officials say Suarez took the child yesterday morning while her mother, Tammy Hayenpour, was sleeping upstairs. She was then located by police at the Roslyn railroad station, where she refused to surrender the baby.

Authorities say the kidnapping was premeditated, and that Suarez had purchased clothes and other baby items.

Suarez has been denied bail and faces multiple charges, including kidnapping, resisting arrest and endangering the welfare of a child.
