      29-day-old baby rescued from father

      Sean Eric Casteel is charged after holding his 29-day-old baby hostage from mother and grandmother.

      A man accused of assaulting his wife, mother and young child on Tuesday has been charged with multiple felonies.

      The Moultrie Observer reports that 29-year-old Sean Eric Casteel has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault, two counts of terroristic threats and kidnapping.

      Officials with the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office reportedly took Casteel down with a taser after a nighttime standoff earlier this week, and witnesses on the scene say that Casteel was wielding a knife, threatening to stab his wife and mother.

      After releasing the two women, Casteel than held onto his 29-day-old baby and refused to give up the child, until three officers were able to get him to the ground and retrieve the infant.

      Investigators with the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office are still investigating this case, and Casteel is currently booked in the Colquitt County Jail.
