MIAMI (CBS4) – The search for a Miami man who ran off with his one-year-old daughter after getting into a fight with the child’s mother has come to an end.
On Wednesday morning, 27-year-old Alfred Alexander went to the Miami Police headquarters where he turned himself in. His mother brought in his daughter Amanda.
The incident began Tuesday around 6:30 p.m. when Alexander went to his aunt’s house at NW 19th Avenue and 47th Terrace to drop off his daughter Amanda. While he was there, Amanda’s mother Chalandra Jackson arrived and two got into a fight.
At one point, police say Alexander grabbed Amanda and took off.
We had fights but it wasn’t to this point, it never got to this point, never until yesterday,” said Jackson.
Police originally believed that Amanda had been abducted by her father because there was concern that she was in harms way. A short time after he ran off, Alexander reportedly texted a friend that he would harm, or even kill, Amanda before he would return her to Jackson.
“I was just like afraid he was going to do something to her because he kept sending bad text messages and stuff,” said Jackson. “He ran with her before and brought her back. Yesterday he ran and I guess he saw the news like everybody else and he brought her back.”
Police said the child was never in any danger.
Police questioned Alexander and said since neither parent has sole custody of the child he will not face any charges.
