OVER-THE-RHINE (FOX19) -

A father is charged with kidnapping his two-month-old son Tuesday afternoon.

Cincinnati police were called to help return the child to its mother. The baby was found along the 200 block of Mohawk in Over-The-Rhine.

Police said the father and mother are both juveniles.

“Our District One officers got multiple calls for a fight involving an infant child,” said Lt. Craig Gregoire, with Cincinnati Police.

Police said the mother and father, who is her boyfriend, got into some kind of argument. They said the father and an accomplice assaulted the mother before leaving the scene with the child.

Police then searched the area looking for the infant. Once they discovered where the father lived, authorities were able to take the baby back without incident.

“Everybody is OK. We had Cincinnati Fire check out the infant -- no injuries,” Gregoire said.

It's unclear what the dispute was about.

The father is charged with kidnapping.

He's scheduled to appear in court May 24.
