A Miami Police officer was arrested Wednesday on charges of armed sexual battery by a law enforcement officer and armed kidnapping, police said. Luis Hernandez, 27, a seven-year member of the police department, was arrested by internal affairs detectives after DNA evidence backed up a woman's claims he kidnapped and sexually battered her in November 2011, police said. Police spokeswoman Kenia Reyes and Mayor Tomas Regalado comment.

Two brothers ages 5 and 3 were kidnapped by a woman who took them without their mother’s permission, North Miami police said.

Police said they responded to the kidnapping at 13200 Northeast 7th Avenue at about 5 p.m. Monday.

The mother of the two young boys, identified as 5-year-old Daren Bonilla and 3-year-old Rey Bonilla, reported that “Gloria” took her sons, but the reason is unknown at this time, police said in a statement.

The mother was running an errand when Gloria told the babysitter that she had to take the kids somewhere, and before the babysitter knew it the children were in a vehicle with the woman, according to police.

“She’s going crazy up there," Detective Felix Guadarrama said of the mother Monday night. "She wants to know if her kids are okay, and where they’re at, and when she’s going to get them back.”

Police described Gloria as a white Latin woman who is about 23 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs about 125 pounds, and has long brown hair. She was wearing a gray long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans and is driving a silver mid-size SUV rental, police said.
