Police: PFA suspect flees with Pa. woman’s infant

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh man has been jailed on charges he kidnapped his 2-week-old son by jumping out a second-floor window when police tried to serve an emergency protection-from-abuse order against him at his ex-girlfriend’s home.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 32-year-old Justin Comans, who told reporters all “All I did was take my son into my house. That’s all I did.”

Police say Comans had the baby strapped to his body in an infant carrier when he jumped out of his ex-girlfriend’s residence and ran away just after midnight Monday. She is the mother of the child.

Police say they found Comans at his home about 6:30 a.m. where he surrendered with the baby.

Comans faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 7 on charges of kidnapping, interference in the custody of children, and endangerment charges.
