Kidnapping Suspect Arrested

A suspect now faces several charges after allegedly stealing a baby from it's mother in Amarillo.

The Amarillo police say Neal Howard Fry has been charged with aggravated assault, endangering a child, "burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault", and attempted escape from custody.

Late Saturday night Fry broke through a sliding glass door and forcibly took the baby from the mother. Fry is the child's biological father.

Police later found Fry with wounds on his legs from the glass. Early reports said Fry had been shot in the legs, but APD has since corrected that statement.

Fry's escape charge stems from an incident in the hospital when he hid from officers above the ceiling tiles in his room.
