      On Wednesday October 18, 2017 at approximately 3:04am Auburn Police responded to a domestic situation in the 100 block of South McClellan Street in Auburn Indiana.

       Upon arrival the complainant Angela Williams (white, female age 27) reported that she had been battered by Dale C. Craig (white, male, age 28) and that Craig had taken her 2-year-old son. Williams told Police that Craig had no paternal rights to the child and she felt the child was in danger.

      Auburn Police initiated an investigation which included an Amber Alert. Officers from the Auburn Police Department were able to run down several leads and were able to locate the suspect and the child at approximately 7:45am within DeKalb County.

     The child was healthy and unharmed but Craig was found to have lacerations to his arm. Craig stated that the cuts were caused when Williams assaulted him with a knife. Craig also claimed that he took the child and left the McClellan Street location as he feared for his and the child’s safety. 

     Auburn Police were able to determine that Craig was the father of the 2-year-old child and did have parental rights. This case is still under investigation but charges against Craig are not anticipated.

     Alcohol consumption on the part of Williams was determined to be a contributing factor in this investigation.  Three other children were in the McClellan Street home at the time of the disturbance.  The Indiana Department of Child Services was contacted and responded to the scene for investigation into the welfare of all involved children.
