A 4-month-old was returned home safe after she disappeared on Christmas Eve. Police continue to search for the child’s father, according to Detroit Free Press.
The Detroit Police Department is searching for a man accused of snatching a 4-month-old baby at gunpoint on Christmas Eve and fleeing in an “unknown direction.”
The Detroit News reports that around 2 p.m. on Monday morning, 22-year-old JaQuan Jones allegedly walked into a home off of the 900 block of Webb in Detroit and took his 4-month-old daughter, A’miyah Jones, by gunpoint. The baby’s mother was in the home with the infant, visiting a relative when the incident occurred. Jones reportedly walked into the home with his twin brother.
“Once inside, the suspect produced a weapon then took the baby from her mother at gunpoint and left in an unknown direction,” the police statement.
After grabbing the baby, the suspect fled and has not been seen since. He may driving a blue Chrysler 200. Detroit police said the incident is not considered a child abduction since Jones is the father, and therefore, an AMBER Alert was not issued. However, the infant has been listed as a “serious missing person.”
Anyone with any information on Jones’ whereabouts should contact the Detroit Police Department’s Third Precinct at 313-596-1300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP.
