ST. LOUIS PARK (AP) – Police say a toddler who was taken by her armed, non-custodial father in St. Louis Park has been found safe.

Authorities say the father took the 17-month-old girl from her home and assaulted the child’s mother Thursday night. The woman told police he was armed with a pistol and threatened to kill the girl and himself.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension issued an Amber Alert which said the father was driving a Ford Expedition with South Carolina license plates and a temporary vehicle registration sticker.

St. Louis Park police said Friday morning the man and toddler were found in Blaine. The toddler is OK and is being returned to her mother. Her father is in jail.
