SPARKS, Nev. (AP) - Sparks police have arrested a 28-year-old man accused of kidnapping his estranged girlfriend and their 7-month child.

Police booked George Torres of Sparks into the Washoe County Jail on Friday on suspicion of child endangerment, obstruction and a local misdemeanor warrant. His bail is set at $21,470.

Police say Torres barricaded himself in an apartment attic after kidnapping 25-year-old Priscilla Leyva and the child during a domestic fight at the residence on Merchant Street Thursday night.

SWAT team officers eventually helped locate him with the help of the K-9 unit and took him into custody.
