SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP) - Police have arrested a man they say kicked in the door of a Somerville child care center, grabbed a 1-year-old girl, and then wrestled with six officers, even grabbing an officer’s gun, before he was subdued.

Sandro Corbelli is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday on a variety of charges including kidnapping and assault and battery in connection with the Tuesday incident.

Police say the girl was unharmed, but one of the officers was treated at the hospital for minor injuries.

Police say the 38-year-old Corbelli had the child in a bear hug and the girl was “visibly in distress.”

After freeing the girl, six officers grappled with Corbelli for a minute in a narrow hallway.

Corbelli was also taken to the hospital. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
