Child suffers wounds during Tres Ríos abduction

Police arrested a man Wednesday on an allegation that he violently kidnaped his own son, according to a judicial bulletin.

The man, identified with the last names of Mora Quiros, 30, was prohibited from seeing the child at his place of residence, said a Judicial Investigating Organization spokesperson.

The spokesperson would not give the minor male child’s name or age.

The judicial agency said this is what happened:

The man violently entered the Tres Ríos home where his son lives and abducted the child. He then brought his son to the home of a relative where he kept the child detained for an hour, according to the bulletin. After an hour, police were able to find the place where Mora was keeping his son and were able to negotiate the release of the child.

Agents reported finding the boy with two stab wounds to his right arm and hand. It is unclear if he received these wounds when he was first abducted or while he was detained. The child was reported to be hospitalized in stable condition. The report also says that Mora was wounded in the arm.

The bulletin added that a judge remanded Mora to preventative detention for three months.
