SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A Shreveport man is facing charges for allegedly breaking into a home and kidnapping his child and her mother.

The woman called 911 around 2 a.m. Saturday morning to report that the father of her child was beating on the back door of her home in the 9000 block of Mansfield road.  While on the phone, the man, Robert L. Stewart, Jr., 23, made his way inside and disconnected the call.

Patrol officers arrived on the scene minutes later and found the glass patio door was broken.  Officers reported it looked as if some sort of struggle had taken place.  The mother and her child were not at the home.

Officers began a search for the missing woman, her infant and Stewart. 

Officer Carolyn Harris found the victims and the suspect in the 6300 block of Buncombe road.  The mother and child were not hurt.  Stewart was immediately taken into custody.

Stewart was booked into the Shreveport city jail on charges of aggravated burglary and simple kidnapping.
