Superior man faces abduction charge

A man accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend's baby made his initial appearance in Douglas County Friday.

Kyle LaMar Taylor, 29, of Superior faces one felony count of abduction of a child and misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct, resisting an officer, possession of drug paraphernalia and operating a motor vehicle after revocation.

The charges stem from a Friday morning incident. According to the criminal complaint, Taylor had gone to his ex-girlfriend's house along Oakes Avenue to get his belongings when the two began arguing. Taylor grabbed the woman's 4-month-old infant. The child, according to the complaint, is not Taylor's. The baby's mother told Superior police officers she tried to stop Taylor, but he pushed her back into a coffee table and ran out of the house with the infant, telling her she would never see the child again.

Taylor locked all the doors to the vehicle and drove away while his ex-girlfriend was hitting the window and screaming at him not to take her baby, according to the complaint.

Superior police officers located Taylor and the infant at a North End convenience store later that morning. He told them he only took the child to Wal-Mart. A Taser was deployed to stun Taylor when he tensed up and pulled away while officers were placing him in handcuffs.

After searching Taylor's vehicle, officers found a small digital scale in a backpack. The scale had green, leafy residue on it that was later identified as marijuana, the complaint stated.

A check of Taylor's driving record showed his driver's license was revoked at the time.

Taylor remains in the Douglas County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled July 9.
