Man flees police leaving infant in car

A man fleeing from Jefferson County sheriff's deputies today left his infant daughter in the car as he tried to make a getaway on foot. Deputies pulled over Kenneth Morrow, 21, about 2:30 p.m. on Ninth Avenue in Bessemer. He fled, leaving the little girl behind, said sheriff's spokesman Lt. Randy Christian. He was captured moments later and taken into custody. Police later learned that Morrow ran because he had an outstanding warrant for unlawful breaking and entering a vehicle. Morrow also faces several traffic offenses and a child endangerment charge, Christian said. Christian said they tried to give the baby o the mother but learned that the infant's 21-year-old mother was wanted on outstanding warrants for probation violation on a theft charge.
The mother was taken into custody and is being held without bond. The infant was taken into custody by the Department of Human Resources
