LA MESA, N.M. (AP)-- Authorities say a 23-year-old father who was wanted after abducting his 2-year-old son has surrendered.
Dona Ana County sheriff's deputies say Sergio Guadalupe Jacquez turned himself in at the main station Tuesday afternoon. He was accompanied by his attorney, and authorities said he was cooperating with investigators.
Authorities planned to book him on charges of arson, aggravated burglary, unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, child abuse and battery.
Jacquez was accused of fleeing with the toddler after allegedly beating the child's grandfather and torching his mobile home.
Monday night's incident triggered an Amber Alert, but the boy was later left unharmed with his paternal grandmother in southern New Mexico.
Authorities initially suspected that Jacques may have fled to Mexico.
