WINCHESTER, Ind. — A man faces multiple charges after being accused of breaking into a home and grabbing a child on Sept. 27.
David Santiago-Hernandez, 31, was arrested on charges of burglary and attempted kidnapping.
According to investigators, officers from the Union City Police Department responded to a residence in the 400 block of W. Hickory Street on a burglary report. Homeowners told investigators that a man had gone through their back window. While inside the home, the man reportedly grabbed the child before fleeing on foot.
Court documents reveal that police identified Santiago-Hernandez as the possible break-in suspect due to the witness’s description matching Santiago-Hernandez. Earlier in the day, Santiago-Hernandez reportedly arrived at the police station and told officers that someone was trying to kill him.
According to court documents, police spoke to Santiago-Hernandez’s significant other, who told police he had been “acting crazy.”
After a search of the area led to police discovering Santiago Hernandez, he reportedly admitted to investigators that he broke into the home through a window and grabbed the juvenile while inside.
