Authorities have arrested a man accused of breaking into his estranged wife’s home before blasting her with a stun gun and pepper spray and kidnapping their 3-year-old son.
The Colorado Bureau of Investigation said Sunday afternoon that an Amber Alert for 3-year-old Luke Turner had been canceled, and the child is safe. The father was arrested at a motel in Brandon, Manitoba in Canada at about 1:30 p.m.
Police say Monty Turner, assaulted his wife at her Longmont, Colo., home Saturday and left with their child. A court order prohibits the father from contacting his wife and son.
The boy’s grandfather was pulled over earlier Sunday in southwest Missouri on a warrant for second-degree kidnapping. He was driving a vehicle with a license plate number listed on an Amber Alert.
