Police update: Charges after Amber Alert, Narangba

A 34-year-old man has been charged after allegedly assaulting a woman and taking a child from a home in Narangba yesterday.

Around 10am, an argument occurred between a man and a woman known to him at a Narangba residence.

During the altercation, the man allegedly repeatedly assaulted the 33-year-old woman and threatened her with a knife, causing a large cut to her hand.

The man left the residence with a six-week-old baby girl while the woman was transported to hospital for treatment to serious non-life-threatening injuries.

Police issued an Amber Alert for urgent public assistance to locate the man and baby.

As a result, the man later attended Caboolture Hospital around 11:30pm with the uninjured baby girl.
