Girl safe after fugitive father is caught
SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A man who authorities say fled with his 3-year-old daughter as Pottawatomie County sheriff's deputies tried to serve a warrant has been captured and the girl is safe, officials say.
Undersheriff Travis Palmer says 32-year-old Robert Almon was found Wednesday evening in Norman at the apartment of his estranged wife, Michelle Wilson. Palmer says 3-year-old Chasity was released to her mother, who is not Wilson. Palmer said Wilson was also arrested and faces charges of harboring a fugitive.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert on Tuesday after Robert Almon allegedly drove off with Chasity and a 10-year-old boy - the son of a friend of Almon's - who was later found unharmed at a Cleveland County residence.
Palmer says Almon faces multiple charges, including fleeing and kidnapping.
