Dad "allegedly" punches mom, "takes off" with "nearly naked" 2-month-old baby; infant found "non-responsive" (Portland, Oregon)

Another reminder that abducting fathers are very seldom interested in quality time with their children. This baby was only 2-months old when dad WILLIAM RAY punched the mother and took off with the baby, who was "nearly naked." No surprise that by the time the baby was recovered, the baby was alive, but "non-responsive." You think this had anything to do with wanting to be an "equal" parent and care for a tiny baby? Or was all this about further hurting and frightening the mother? Looks pretty obvious to me which way the wind was blowing here.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- A 2-month-old baby wound up in the hospital after the father ran from a house with the child, prosecutors say.

The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office says William Ray, 27, got into an argument with his girlfriend Sunday and punched her in the nose. He then took their infant and ran off, they say.

Officers were called in connection with the reported assault.

Ray was found dressed only in pants and a garbage bag, prosecutors say, and the baby was nearly naked.

Ray returned the baby, who was described as non-responsive but alive, to the house and police were called again.

The District Attorney’s Office says Ray told officers he was upset over something having to do with his girlfriend.

When interviewed by detectives, Ray appeared apologetic, according to prosecutors.

Ray was arrested on suspicion of first-degree criminal mistreatment and fourth-degree felony assault -- domestic violence.

The baby was taken to a hospital and is fine.
