SPD arrests man who allegedly kidnapped month-old daughter

Update at 5:21 p.m.: Seattle police located a man who allegedly kidnapped his one-month-old daughter and threatened to kill the child’s mother just after 5 p.m. at an apartment on Capitol Hill. The girl was not harmed, police say.

Earlier today, police said Eric Carney, 39, approached his child’s mother in the 5200 block of 15th Avenue Northeast in Seattle’s University District just before noon, threatened her and then grabbed a stroller containing their infant daughter out of her hands. The woman tried to grab the stroller back, but Carney attacked her and fled with the child, according to police.

Officers are now searching for Carney, who had previously been ordered to have no contact with the woman, police said. He was last seen wearing a red shirt, camo shorts  and pink children’s backpack. He is 5-feet-11, 260 pounds, and has “EJC” tattooed on his left arm.

According to court records, Carney has felony drug convictions, as well as convictions for burglary and taking a motor vehicle without permission from the 1990s and early 2000s, and a number of misdemeanor convictions. Court records also show he was the subject of a temporary protection order issued in December 2012, though it does not appear that the order was made permanent.
