RICHMOND, Texas (AP) — Deputies say a woman accused of snatching a 9-year-old Houston-area boy allegedly had an affair with his father and was upset that the relationship ended.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday announced the apparent motive for the abduction of Amsal Dhuka (AM’-sal DOO’-kuh).

Kismat Momin (moh-MEEN’) of Sugar Land was charged with kidnapping after she surrendered Tuesday, hours after the boy was found unharmed. She’s being held on $125,000 bond.

The 34-year-old Momin lives in the same apartment complex as the boy’s family. Authorities say there’s no evidence that Momin intended to harm the boy.

His father reported the disappearance Monday afternoon when Amsal was seen getting off a school bus but never arrived home. The child was found at a Muslim worship center about 10 miles away.
