Wilkinsburg police questioning kidnapping suspect
Wilkinsburg police are questioning a man suspected of kidnapping an 8-year-old boy this morning.
The boy, Jacquir Baston, was taken to Mercy Hospital for examination after he and suspect David George, 25, were located in a house on Perrysville Avenue in Pittsburgh, police said.
State police canceled an Amber Alert issued for the two after police found them around 12:45 p.m.
Baston was taken from a house on Center Street in Wilkinsburg at about 3 a.m., police said.
George and the child's mother, Annique Baston, argued early today, Wilkinsburg police Chief Ophelia "Cookie" Coleman said. George is the father of Baston's 4-year-old twins but not the father of Jacquir, Coleman said.
Baston lives in Virginia with her children but was in the area because she and George were due in court today for a child support hearing regarding the twins.
"He told her he did not want to be in court," Coleman said.
