The police are looking for a 3-year-old boy that was taken by his dad on a bicycle after he attacked the boy’s mother in Colorado on Saturday.
Monty Ray Turner, 51, allegedly kicked in the door to the Longmont home where his estranged wife, Brandy Turner and son, Luke Turner lived. He then used a stun gun on Brandy and pepper-sprayed her. Brandy began screaming and wresting with Monty and they both ended up on the floor. All of this was witnessed by the little boy, who was afraid for his mother.
“My son got out of his chair at the table and was yelling to him, ‘Please don’t hurt my mommy,'” Brandy told the Denver Channel.
After the incident while Monty was with Luke, Brandy went into a bedroom to call 911 and when she returned Monty had taken Luke and took off on a bicycle with Luke in a child seat.
The battle of who is going to take care of Luke has happened before, when Monty took off with Luke last Fourth of July. Luke was with Monty for the three day holiday and agreed to bring Luke back afterwards but instead he and Luke went missing. The police found Luke and his dad in Akron at Monty’s parent’s home nine months later.
Washington County Deputy Christopher Marston said three deputies served a search warrant and searched for about two hours before locating both of them under carpet padding in a truck parked on the property, the Times Call reported. Monty was not arrested because according to the police he had a right to have custody of his son.
Brandy filed for divorce during that period of time and filed for a protection order which stated that Monty was not allowed to contact his wife or son.
On Brandy’s Facebook page she explained, “Well I have a permanent protection order keeping him away from Luke and the house. There is a bench warrant for his arrest for not showing up to the hearing. I’m not really sure where he is but I’m moving forward with a divorce by publication.”
Monty will be facing charges for the assault and alleged kidnapping. He is currently in violation of failing to appear in court and an arrest warrant has been issued.
An Amber alert has been issued for Monty as the authorities are concerned about his welfare. The FBI has also been called in to search for father and son.
Authorities believe that Monty may be driving a 1999 white 4-door Chrysler 300 with Colorado license plate 161-ZXZ.
