Mendoza broke into the home, and pointed a gun at an undisclosed number of occupants, police said. He then fled with the baby's mother, Bastinelli said. The dispute is over custody, he said.

The baby has blond hair and blue eyes, and he was last seen wearing a maroon shirt with gray sleeves, and red and blue checkered pants, according to police.
