LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- New charges Monday, Oct. 28, for the man accused of kidnapping his daughter earlier in October, triggering an Amber Alert.

Joshua Yeager has been charged with criminal abuse after police say he struck his 9-month-old son earlier in October.

His girlfriend told police he assaulted her and the child at a Wal-Mart in Fern Creek and tried to abduct them.

She got away with the baby, but Yeager managed to get away with their other child, 2-year-old Jaylynn Maxey.

She was found safe after a police chase.
