PATERSON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Authorities have canceled an AMBER Alert for a Paterson infant.
Police say that George Berry, 30, violated a domestic violence restraining order and kicked in the front door of the mother of his son Reign Berry.
Authorities say George Berry punched the boy’s mother in the face, grabbed the child and drove off.
It happened at her home on Van Houten Street.
He drove off in a silver Chrysler Town and Country with New Jersey plate N47JRM, authorities said.
The vehicle was recovered in Paterson.
“The baby’s father is clearly crazy,” said Bria Nero, who is the mother’s cousin. “He kicked the door in. Took the child and put his hands on her.”
The child was recovered later Wednesday morning, and George Berry was taken into custody around noon. The child was taken to the hospital for observation.
“He wanted to be with her. He’s just acting crazy, because she don’t want no relationship with him. He wanted a relationship with her,” Nero said.
