A California surgeon is accused of a violent attack in a brazen attempt to kidnap her 12-year-old son before fleeing the state in a private jet, police say.

Police say Theresa Lynn Colosi, 55, chartered a private plane for herself, her 12-year-old son, and her dog before allegedly assaulting a woman whom a court appointed to supervise Colosi’s visits with her son, according to KRTV.

Colosi is an orthopedic surgeon from San Jose, California.

She’s also accused of booking a private jet to Glacier Jet Center at Glacier International Airport in Montana, according to a Whitefish Police Department press release.
