Your Husband Beat You And Fled With Your Child? There’s An App For That

NEW YORK (TRP)— An iPhone app helped police officers trace a New York man who fled with his infant daughter after allegedly assaulting his wife.

According to NYPD officials, 30-year-old Alexis Torres became involved in a verbal dispute with his 30-year-old wife at the couple’s home in the Woodside section at about 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The argument snowballed into an physical altercation where Torres allegedly attacked his wife, choking her. Torres then fled the scene with their 1-year-old baby girl, police said.

The victim called 911, telling police what happened. Responding officers were made aware by his wife that Torres had an iPhone. The victim gave officers her husband’s iTunes account information, which officers used to track Torres, using the Find My iPhone application.

Police successfully tracked the suspect from a location in Brooklyn to Manhattan. They ultimately caught up with Torres on the lower East Side sometime after 9 p.m. and placed him into police custody without incident.

The child was not harmed.

Torres, a Department of Education employee, was charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
