NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – The non-custodial parents of two young children from Queens have been arrested after allegedly abducting them last week, the NYPD said Wednesday.
Eddie Bellas, 37, and Nekaybew McNeal, 27, also of Queens, were arrested on Tuesday, police said.
The two were charged with removing their 4-year-old son and 8-month old daughter from the children’s home in Woodhaven and failing to return them, despite the fact that they are not their guardians, the NYPD said.
Police tracked Bellas and McNeal to Schenectady, New York, where they were taken into custody, the New York Post reported.
Both “were wanted on child abuse warrants out of family court,” the outlet reported. Their children were taken into ACS custody, according to the outlet.
Attorney information for the two wasn’t immediately available Wednesday.
