The 2-month-old boy taken from a mother in Pleasanton is safe after the father and uncle surrendered themselves to police around 11:20 a.m. yesterday.
The mother of one of the suspects allegedly called Pleasanton police upon hearing the Amber Alert to arrange the surrender of father Damiante Dunn, 18, and his brother, Kelandre Dunn, 20, at the Antioch Police Station. The men were brought to the Pleasanton Police Department this afternoon.
Diamante Dunn was booked at Santa Rita Jail this afternoon for domestic battery, violation of a domestic violence restraining order and child abduction. Kelandre Dunn was booked in Contra Costa County for outstanding arrest warrants, according to Pleasanton police.
Investigation into his role in the abduction continues and charges may be forthcoming, Sgt. Barry Mickleburgh said. He added that the baby has been placed in protective custody with Alameda County Child Protective Services.
The two men were said to have forcibly taken the infant from his 17-year-old mother around 4:45 a.m. this morning near Holland Drive and Payne Road.
Damiante Dunn had allegedly been calling the mother that evening and had threatened to take the baby away if she didn't tell him of her whereabouts. The girl told police she had just returned from a party with her baby and a female friend and when they arrived home the two suspects were waiting in front of the residence in a white 1988 Oldsmobile.
Police said Damiante Dunn pulled the mother out of the car while Kelandre Dunn punched the friend in the face, removed the baby from the car and handed him off to Damiante who then put the baby in the Oldsmobile.
Damiante Dunn is scheduled to be arraigned at 11 a.m. Friday in Department 701 of the Gale-Schenone Hall of Justice in Pleasanton, according to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.
