A man arrested last week following an alleged parental abduction remains in custody and is facing several charges in connection with the incident.

Police confirmed Tuesday that charges against 35-year-old Benjamin James McBeath include aggravated assault, breach of undertaking, unlawful confinement and break-and-enter.

The charges follow a Sept. 27 incident, in which police were called to a home in the 1500-block of King George Boulevard around 8 p.m. Upon arrival, officers determined there had been a dispute, an alleged assault of an adult female and the alleged abduction of a four-year-old boy.

An Amber Alert was issued around 9:40 p.m. It was deactivated about two hours later, after the boy was found in a vehicle spotted southbound in the 15600-block of King George Boulevard. One man was arrested at the scene without incident.

McBeath, who police confirmed is the father of the boy reported missing, is due back in court Oct. 7.
