Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christopher L.C. Kuberiet and Chief Fred Tavener of the Plainsboro Police Department announced that a township man was arrested today on charges of taking his four-month old child from the mother and threatened to hurt himself.
Police say Mr. Trevon Walker, 24, was arrested today and charged with interfering with custody in the third degree.
The New Jersey State Police issued an Amber Alert at 12:21 a.m., seeking the public’s assistance in finding the child, and rescinded the call shortly after the child was dropped off at a location in Trenton.
The child was medically cleared and unharmed and has been returned to the mother.
Walker fled to Pennsylvania and was located and apprehended in Morrisville, Pennsylvania with the help of the New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit.
Walker is being held in Pennsylvania awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
The incident began at approximately 12:00 a.m. when police were told the four-month old child was taken by the father from a home in Plainsboro.
The Plainsboro Police Department, the New Jersey State Police Missing Person Unit, and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office began an immediate search for the child.
The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Robert Urie of the Plainsboro Police Department at (609) 799- 2333 or Detective David Abromaitis at the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745- 4436.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charge against Walker is merely an accusation and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
