NSW woman accused of snatching toddlers from Coast home

SUNSHINE Coast detectives are taking action today to extradite a New South Wales woman who allegedly snatched two children from a Beerwah home in what police described as a violent confrontation.

Police will allege that on Tuesday about 9.30am the two adult occupants of the Beerwah house, a 31-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman, were threatened by the group before the woman was struck on the head with a metal pole, sustaining a laceration to her head that required hospital treatment.

Two children, a three-year-old girl and her one-year-old brother, were removed from the house, with the group then leaving with the children.

The woman and two children were located safe and well in the New South Wales town of Moree yesterday, and detectives will travel to New South Wales to seek the woman's extradition.

Investigations are continuing.
