A Massachusetts man has been arrested in Lynn after kidnapping his 3-year-old son and assaulting the child's mother in Plymouth Wednesday morning, authorities said.
The child, Kyrie Taylor, was found unharmed after his father, Rosba Taylor, was taken into police custody on State Street in Lynn just after 11:30 a.m.
"He does have a history in the city of Lynn," said Lynn Police Lt. Michael Kmiec. "That's why they thought he was coming back."
State police previously said Taylor was driving a dark green Jeep Cherokee with a broken windshield and Cape Cod plates; however, our crews on the scene said the vehicle is a dark Honda CRV.
The suspect had been estranged from his child and his child's mother and didn't have permission to have Kyrie when he arrived at a home on Algonquin Terrace in Plymouth, assaulting Kyrie's mother and then taking the child, according to state police.
The boy has since been reunited with his mother.
Law enforcement also warned the public during their search that Taylor may have been armed; it's unclear if he was armed when he was arrested.
"It's not him to do anything like that," said Ernie Panias, who claims to be Rosba Taylor's grandfather. "Something drastically had to happen for him to do something like that."
State police officials say they had been seconds away from activating an Amber Alert when they learned Lynn police had found Taylor and the boy.
Taylor will be charged with parental kidnapping and domestic assault and battery.
