Father arrested after ‘forcefully abducting’ boy, 5, from Lake Forest Park home

LAKE FOREST PARK, Wash. -- A boy was found safe and his father taken into custody after police say he broke into a Lake Forest Park home and "forcefully abducted" the child.

Police had issued an AMBER Alert for  the 5-year-old boy taken by his father who police say is "violent and dangerous."

Bothell police said the child was taken from a home on 35th Ave NE by his father, Taraille Chesney, who then sped away from officers. They said he "forcefully abducted" the child from his legal guardian's home.

Police said Chesney then "recklessly drove away" as police tried to stop him. He was involved in a hit-and-run in South Seattle at Marginal Way and SR 99.

Around 2 p.m., Chesney's silver Mercedes 320 crashed into police vehicles near Seattle's Ravenna Park. A Seattle police spokesman said the father and son had "very minor injuries, if any." He said they were taken to separate hospitals for evaluation. The boy would be returned to his custodial guardians, the spokesman said, and the father would be booked into the King County Jail.

Chesney was taken into custody.
