An Amber Alert has been issued for a 2-year-old boy police say was abducted at gunpoint with his mother in Detroit late Sunday night by his father.
Last seen wearing a red shirt and a diaper, 2-year-old Zayshawn Diggs is described as 3 feet tall, weighing 30 pounds with black hair, black skin and brown eyes.
Akeem Lafabhili, 22, took the boy and his mother, Racheal Latoshia Diggs, at 11:45 p.m. Sunday from the 8900 block of Vaughn on Detroit’s northwest side, Detroit Police Sgt. Eren Stephens Bell said. The boy’s mother had left Lafabhili last week, and police had responded to a domestic violence complaint involving the couple in June, Bell said.
Police said Lafabhili is a 5-foot 8-inch tall man, weighing 170 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and wearing a white hooded sweatshirt. They were last seen in a green 1996 four-door Chevrolet Impala, police said.
