A woman gave birth to a baby boy inside a Cañon City Walmart bathroom on Saturday afternoon, multiple managers at the store confirmed.
The woman gave birth to the baby at around 2:10 p.m. inside the bathrooms between the two entrances at the front of the store.
Monica LeDoux is a Walmart employee who said she gave mouth to mouth to the newborn baby boy shortly after it was born.
“She already delivered the baby. She had the baby in her lap, the baby was purple,” LeDoux told the Cañon City Daily Record. “The baby’s mom and the (baby’s grandmother), they were on the phone with 911 and they didn’t know how to do CPR, so all I did was just give it mouth to mouth, and he started moving and he pinked up a little bit.
“He started breathing, so he did good.”
The paramedics told LeDoux that since she gave mouth to mouth to the newborn baby that she should go to the hospital to get checked out. While at St. Thomas More, the doctors told LeDoux that she was fine.
That’s when LeDoux found out that the baby was a boy, she said. During the action of giving mouth to mouth, LeDoux said she never noticed if the baby was a boy or girl.
LeDoux said she heard from doctors that the baby is doing good and is in Colorado Springs and breathing on his own.
LeDoux has never met the family and doesn’t know their names. She said the mother was a young white woman.

A 22-year-old New Castle man was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly threw semen on a female customer’s leg inside the Walmart store near New Castle, police said.
The incident occurred about 3:30 p.m. at the store at 117 Wilton Blvd. where troopers were sent to investigate a “sexual assault,” according to court records.
The 20-year-old woman reported that as she was standing in an aisle texting on her cellphone when a man walked by her, “said excuse me” and then “she suddenly felt something wet on her buttocks, thigh and leg,” police said in court records.
At first, the victim thought she had been spat upon, but when when she looked down, she saw “a ‘glob’ of semen on her leg, just below her knee,” police said.
The woman stood in the aisle awhile shocked at what happened, before walking down the aisle to find an employee to help her.
The suspect, meanwhile, later identified as Frank J. Short Jr., continued to follow her down every aisle while watching her, until the victim slipped into the “Employees Only” area of the store near the electronics section and told them she was being followed, police said in court records.
Two employees escorted the victim to the security office in the front of the store and called police.
Arriving troopers arrested Short, who was charged with offensive touching with bodily fluid, harassment, lewdness and disorderly conduct, Cpl. John Day said.
Preliminary testing of the substance on the woman’s clothing was “indicative of semen,” police said.
Short, meanwhile, was questioned by detectives and initially said the “he sneezed into his hands, then shook his hands off,” and told the detective that “some of his mucus may have flung on to her,” according to court records.
He later changed his story several times, saying it was spit that he threw, then saliva.
When confronted with the preliminary evidence, Short acknowledged that “he performs both the fake spanking and the throwing of the substance because he notices the female and feels they are attractive and gets off on the act.”
Short was committed to Young Correctional Institution in lieu of $2,500 cash and $4,000 secured bail.
Anyone who has information on this case or may have been a victim of a similar act, are asked to call Troop 2 detectives at 834-2620, ext.571 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.16 Comments
A 30-year-old man with a backpack filled with sex toys and lubricants caused a bomb scare at an Aurora Wal-Mart Wednesday.
The bomb squad was called to the parking lot of the Wal-Mart at 3301 N. Tower Road around 6:15 p.m. after a man wearing a backpack acted suspicious when the woman he was with was caught shoplifting, said Cassidee Carlson, Aurora police spokeswoman.
“Police contacted him in the parking lot after security looked in the backpack and saw some liquids and piping,” she said.
Something in the backpack got a “hit” from a bomb-sniffing dog, so the bomb squad was called in, she said.
“There was no bomb, only sex toys,” she said. “The man had active warrants, so he was arrested, anyway.”
The woman the suspect was with was issued a summons for shoplifting and released, police said.6 Comments
