Thirty-eight-year-old Daniel Segura was spotted driving with his 1-year-old daughter Lexi in Montclair Tuesday. Segura was arrested and the child was recovered.
Authorities had been searching for the pair since Monday. Police say Daniel Segura was at a friend’s house Monday in Rancho Cucamonga and began arguing with his estranged wife, who is the child’s mother. That’s when authorities say he pulled out a gun and took the toddler.
Police say Segura had threatened “suicide by cop” -- a tactic in which someone intent on killing themselves deliberately provokes a police officer to do the job for them.
Police say Segura will be booked on suspicion of child abduction.
