KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Kansas and Missouri both issued an Amber Alert for a missing two-year-old boy out of Kansas City, Kan., Friday afternoon. Shortly after 6 p.m., the suspect– the non-custodial father and his wife of 2-year-old Jace Brunt– was arrested at the Kansas City, Kan., police station.
Jace’s mother says his son has also been recovered.
“I hope he rot in jail,” the mother said of Jace’s father.
At approximately 12:53pm, Jace Brunt was forcibly taken from his biological mother by his non-custodial father.
The mother told FOX 4’s Shannon O’Brien that he has taken Jace without permission once before.
According to the boy’s mom, her children’s father pointed a gun at a neighbor and also punched her in the face.
Inside the house, she says her ex’s new wife sprayed her with mace, or pepper spray and fought with her.
“She maced me and then the mace was going past there was a whole bunch of mace and it went to my 7-year-old daughter. And then she couldn’t breathe so I had to tell the kids to run upstairs to get out of the mace area,” said Jace’s mother.
The violent actions at the scene indicate that Jace is in imminent danger. The suspect left the 1700 of block of S. 35th Street, Kansas City, Kansas, heading south in a white Dodge Charger with rear end damage.
The mother told FOX 4 that Joshua Andrew Brunt grabbed their son and threw him into the car and left his wife behind.
“I think he’s not going to do nothing. That’s his son,” she said. “He’s a person that don’t stop when he’s mad.”
