12:34 PM: A man who was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping a woman’s infant son in San Francisco’s Marina District early this morning likely will not face criminal charges in the case after the woman confirmed that he is the child’s father, a police spokesman said today.
The 10-month-old boy was reportedly taken at about 4 a.m. near the intersection of Lombard and Pierce streets after the 38-year-old man and 24-year-old woman got into an argument, police said.
The man took the boy, and was subsequently taken into custody, according to police. The child was found safe.
Although the man was booked into county jail in connection with the incident, the case is being handled as a domestic dispute and not a kidnapping, Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.
