LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Authorities say an Arkansas man suspected of abducting his 18-month-old daughter after allegedly beating and stabbing her mother has surrendered to authorities and his daughter is OK.
The Howard County Sheriff's Office said Monday that Ralph Waldo Morrison III turned himself in to the U.S. Marshals Service at an attorney's office in Texarkana. Deputy Bryan McJunkins says Morrison had his daughter, Zahkairi, with him, and she was transported to a hospital as a precaution.
Officers say she appeared to be unharmed.
McJunkins transported Morrison to the Howard County Jail, where he is being held on a $250,000 bail.
Authorities began looking for him after he allegedly crashed his car into the car Zahkairi's mother was driving Sunday. He allegedly beat the woman and stabbed her with an ice pick.
