PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Police say the suspect in the abduction of a 2-year-old boy in the city’s Frankford section turned himself in on Tuesday afternoon.

Police say 24-year-old Jared Montgomery surrendered to authorities around 3:30 p.m., almost 18 hours after the ordeal began. He is facing a litany of charges, including kidnapping and endangering the welfare of a child.

The incident happened on the 4900 block of Frankford Avenue, just after 9:40 p.m. on Monday.

Investigators say the boy and his 21-year-old mother were at a nearby bus stop when the boy’s mother was approached by her ex-boyfriend. Police say an argument ensued and the man grabbed the child and fled the area. The mother ran after them but was unable to catch up.

Investigators say the suspect dropped off the 2-year-old boy at Frankford Hospital Tuesday just after 6:30 a.m., before fleeing the scene. The child was unharmed.
