File # MV221950177
On Thursday, July 14, 2022, at 10:30 AM, Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies assigned to the Riverside University Health System - Medical Center were notified by hospital staff of an individual impersonating a nurse on campus. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned a female entered the hospital posing as a newly hired nurse and gained access to a medical unit where newborn infants were present. The female entered a patient's hospital room and identified herself as a nurse. While inside the patient’s room, she attempted to take their newborn infant. The suspect was confronted by hospital staff, who then notified security. The female fled the location before she was able to be apprehended by hospital security or law enforcement.
Investigators from the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station quickly assumed the investigation and identified the female suspect as twenty three-year-old, Jesenea Miron, from the city of Moreno Valley. Investigators served a search warrant at the 11000 block of Weber Street in the city of Moreno Valley, where Miron was located and arrested. Additional items of evidentiary value were also located inside the residence.
Jesenea Miron was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for kidnapping charges and is currently being held on a one-million-dollar bail.
Anyone with additional information is encouraged to call Investigator Galvan or Master Investigator Merrill of the Moreno Valley Sheriff’s Station at 951-486-6700 or the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department at 951-776-1099.
