A man accused of kidnapping his girlfriend's 19-month-old boy faces charges after the child was returned safely to his family.
Police arrested Erick Aleman-Hernandez, 22, on kidnapping charges, WMATA says.
The mother and her boyfriend, who is not the child's father, were arguing Tuesday night in the kiss-and-ride area at the Branch Avenue Metro Station. They were inside a car.
Officers say the boyfriend told the mother to get out. Before the mother could get the child out, Aleman-Hernandez allegedly sped off.
Metro Transit and Prince George's police swarmed a residence where they had found Aleman-Hernandez' car but weren't able to find him or the child. Eventually, officers established communication with Aleman-Hernandez, who agreed to surrender to police in District Heights.
