CHAMPLIN, Minn. (AP) — A suburban Minneapolis woman is accused of sending anonymous notes to a neighboring family saying that she wanted to “taste” their children.

Champlin Deputy Police Chief Ty Schmidt said 38-year-old Carrie Pernula was charged Thursday by summons with stalking and disorderly conduct.

Police say Pernula was upset because the children made noise and left items in her yard.

WCCO-TV reports the first anonymous note arrived Sept. 27 by mail and said: “The children look delicious. May I have a taste?” The family has two elementary school students.

The family then began to receive magazine subscriptions addressed to “tasty children.”

Police traced the magazines and arrested Pernula last Friday. She was released from jail Monday.

Pernula’s attorney, Debbie Lang, called it “an unfortunate and complicated situation for everyone involved.”
