Johnny Bineda Gonzalez, 21, of Cedartown, is charged with burglary, simple assault and criminal trespass on public hunting and fishing areas.
He has since been released from the Polk County Jail on bond.
Polk County Police Department reports state officers were dispatched Dec. 19 to an apartment at 2 Croker Way after the complainant, Sara Elizabeth Weaver, called 911 to report a break-in by Gonzalez.
Polk County 911 advised Gonzalez was heading toward Michael Avenue in a white Honda Accord. County police officers asked the Cedartown Police Department to stop the vehicle.
Gonzalez and a passenger were stopped near Collard Valley Road and both were turned over to Polk County police, according to Cedartown police reports.
The passenger was not charged, according to Polk County reports.
Gonzalez told police he had not legitimized the child and police told him he then had no visitation rights.
Weaver told police the two had previous domestic incidents during their five-year relationship and Gonzalez had threatened to take the child and never return, according to reports.
She had not reported any of the incidents to police, reportes stated.
Reports said Weaver dead-bolted the front door when she saw the car, which she recognized, pull to the front of her home. Weaver said Gonzalez kicked the door in after she to told him to leave.
Although Gonzalez said he only pushed the door, police reports state there was damage to the door consistent with Weaver’s statement.
The baby was at his grandmothers at the time of the incident.
