Shortly after the alleged assault, police say the child's mother threatened to call the police on Robinson, to report the alleged assault and police say that's when Robinson took the child from the room and ran.

Police responding to the scene reportedly spotted Robinson and pursued him through the Mooretown neighborhood, then through a field. When police caught up with Robinson they the child was not with him.

"He's denying even having the child right now, but obviously he left him. We had too many people see him with the child," said Shreveport Police Capt. Steve Pierce.

Authorities say the woman pulled over when she saw the child and grabbed him as he was running toward the Interstate.
