Imagery has captured a serial fraudster with two children whom she allegedly stole while posing as a school student.
Samantha Azzopardi, 31, walked Friday with a 10-month-old and her four-year-old sister through Bendigo in Victoria, dressed in what looked like a school uniform and a sun hat, Nine news reported.
Azzopardi is accused of forging documents to live with the children as an au pair and allegedly gave the parents a false name.
Samantha Azzopardi (photo on the right) reportedly had been an au pair with a family in Pascoe Vale for two weeks.
The 31-year-old lived with the family in their home in Pascoe Vale for only two weeks before allegedly abducting the children.
The woman had told the parents that she was taking the children on a day trip to Geelong, but instead traveled in the opposite direction to Bendigo.
Azzopardi was captured while carrying the baby girl while her older sister followed him.
Another woman was also with Azzopardi and was seen carrying the baby – but her identity has not been confirmed.

Only when the 31-year-old entered a psychiatric center, Headspace, did a staff member recognize her and warn the police.
The police arrested the woman in Pall Mall of Bendigo and put her in handcuffs.
The children were returned unharmed to their parents and the woman was charged with two counts of stealing children and mentioning a false name.
The alleged child thief would appear in court on Monday and Tuesday, but was instead taken to the hospital where she had an MRI scan.
She refused to let the police take a DNA sample and have her photo taken, the court heard.
Azzopardi will stand in court on 20 November.
