Child Abducted from Scott County School

Brittany Hurtt, 34, was arrested on a variety of charges
stemming from the kidnapping.

A woman was arrested yesterday after police say she abducted a child from an Indiana elementary school.

According to a statement from Scott County District 1 Superintendent Trevor Jones, the woman who was later identified as Austin resident Brittany Hurtt, 34, gained access to the second-grader by jumping a fence. After snatching the girl from the playground, Hurtt reportedly fled with the child.

The little girl was returned safely, something Jones credits to the quick thinking of both staff and local law enforcement.

“Our staff notified the office, who notified our school resource officer who notified the local police,” Jones said. “And fortunately, we had the student back within minutes. The adult was arrested within minutes. We are very fortunate that the student is physically fine.”

Hurtt – who apparently is not related to the child she abducted – was charged with kidnapping, resisting law enforcement, battery resulting in bodily injury to a public safety official, criminal tresspass, and public nudity.

Superintendent Jones said Hurtt was fully-clothed when she was at the school.

The motive for abducting the child is currently unknown.
