DALLAS -- Police are looking for a man who rammed a woman’s vehicle, smashed the vehicle’s windows and then reached in and took a 10-month-old boy Wednesday.
Officers responded to a kidnapping in progress call about 11:15 a.m. at Regal Row and Stemmons Freeway, police said in a news release.
After their arrival, officers spoke to an 18-year-old woman who said she had just broken up with her boyfriend or common-law husband. She said she took their 10-month-old son and left their home in Lewisville. The child’s father, Manuel Patricio Bolanos
, 27, is suspected of following the mother down Interstate 35E until she exited Regal Row, the news release said.
The mother and child were at the stoplight when Bolanos rammed their vehicle, got out of his car -- a 1999 silver or gray Chrysler Concord -- and began smashing the driver’s window of the mother’s car.
Bolanos then went around to the passenger side and smashed the rear passenger window, the release said.
As the light turned green, the woman was able to drive into a parking lot. The suspect boxed her car in, grabbed the child from his car seat, and pulled him through the broken window.
The child may have been cut by the broken window, police said.
Bolanos put the child in his car and drove away, police said. Bolanos is described as being 6 feet, 7 inches tall and weighing approximately 200 pounds.
The child is described as light-skinned with red hair. He was wearing a blue shirt and black windbreaker pants.
Bolanos is wanted on warrants out of Waco and his vehicle carries Texas license plate number 375-VJC.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Dallas police missing person’s unit at 214-671-4268 or call 9-1-1 immediately.
