As police approached the area, they said a man, identified in an arrest warrant as Lamarim Holder, grabbed the child and entered a home on Treutlan Place.

Officers knocked on the door, but said Holder refused to come outside. At one point, they reported hearing Holder arguing with a woman inside the residence.

When the woman emerged from the home, she told police that Holder had punched and slapped her, then pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her.

Officers said Holder’s mother eventually helped to bring him outside, where he surrendered to police.

Once Holder was in custody, a warrant states he kicked the window out of the cruiser, then spit on the windows and on an officer’s leg.
