Officials: Man who sparked Amber Alert in Milwaukee threatened to 'torture' baby girl
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Charges have been filed against a 29-year-old Milwaukee man who prompted an Amber Alert last Wednesday to find a missing 1-year-old girl.
The Amber Alert was activated for Kennedy Parker on Wednesday, May 31 and canceled hours later when she was found safe.
According to a criminal complaint, the child's mother had broken up with Khijuan Parker -- identified as the child's biological father -- less than two weeks earlier and moved out of the residence they previously shared.
Officials said Parker then allegedly arrived at the woman's residence, kicked the door about five times, took the child and left.
The child's mother told investigators, as Parker was loading up the child in his car to leave, he threatened that if she called police he would go on a high-speed chase during which the child would "fly out the window." Parker also threatened, according to the complaint, to torture the little girl and send videos of it to her mother "to make her suffer" if she called police.
Parker was arrested and charged with the following:
- Interfere with child custody-other parent (Felony)
- Burglary of a building or dwelling (Felony)
- Intimidation of a victim, domestic abuse assessment (Felony)
- Bail jumping (Felony)
- Criminal damage to property, domestic abuse assessment (Misd.)
- Entry into locked building, dwelling or room, domestic abuse assessment (Misd.)
Parker was due in court for an initial appearance on June 6.
