Dad arrested after assaulting mom "over custody", abducting infant son, then abandoning baby with stranger (Greeley, Colorado)

Yup, just wanted quality time, right? Just like all the abuser daddies who want custody.

Notice that this one had a protection order filed against him, and he STILL assaulted the mom over custody.

Oh, and that baby he wanted so so much? Guess he didn't have much trouble abandoning him with a total stranger when he realized the cops were after him.

Dad is identified as ALVIN PADILLA.

GREELEY — The father of an infant has been arrested after police say he took his son from the boy’s mother and then left him with a woman he’d never met while he tried to flee.

Greeley police say Alvin Padilla confronted the boy’s mother on Monday over custody of their son. Police say Padilla struck the mother and then got into his car and drove off with the boy.

Police say Padilla left the child with a woman he didn’t know and told her the police were after him. Authorities say he returned to retrieve the child while officers were investigating.

Padilla is facing charges of child abuse, harassment and violation of a restraining order.

The baby was dropped off to a resident in the 1900 block of 12th Avenue in Greeley at 7:17 p.m. Monday, according to police.
