MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ - Following an amber alert that was issued this afternoon, a Plainsboro man was arrested for abducting his four-month-old child and threatening to hurt himself.
Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christopher L.C. Kuberiet and Chief Fred Tavener of the Plainsboro Police Department announced that Trevon Walker, 24, was arrested today and charged with interfering with custody in the third degree.
The New Jersey State Police issued an Amber Alert at 12:21 a.m., seeking the public’s assistance in finding the child, and rescinded the call shortly after the child was dropped off at a location in Trenton. The child was medically cleared and unharmed and has been returned to the mother.
Walker fled to Pennsylvania and was located and apprehended in Morrisville, Pennsylvania with the help of the New Jersey State Police Fugitive Unit.
Walker is being held in Pennsylvania awaiting extradition to New Jersey.
The Plainsboro Police Department, the New Jersey State Police Missing Person Unit, and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office began an immediate search for the child.
The investigation is active and continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Robert Urie of the Plainsboro Police Department at (609) 799- 2333 or Detective David Abromaitis at the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745- 4436.
As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charge against Walker is merely an accusation and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
