Man arrested after allegedly assaulting wife, taking baby
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Three New York City police officers and an iPhone are being credited with solving a crime and rescuing a baby.
Police in Queens were called after a 30-year-old woman said her husband tried to strangle her and then ran off with their 1-year-old child.
The suspect, 30-year-old Alex Torres, also took the family iPhone.
Officers used the "find my iPhone app" to track him down near Stuvesant Town.
Torres, a Department of Education employee, is charged with assault and child endangerment.
The officers involved (pictured) have been identified as Lieutenant James Lombardi, Sergeant Peter Cassiere and Officer Maritza Mendez.
