AMBER Alert cancelled for Memphis infant; father has been arrested

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A 5-month-old is safe after she was found inside a vacant unit at the Hillview Village Apartments with her father.

Hours earlier, police say 19-year-old Alvin Lloyd took the child by force from his ex-girlfriend's apartment in the same complex.

"As we announced earlier, the suspect broke into the victim's apartment through a glass window and was cut up and left enough blood and blood trails in different areas of the complex," said Col. Sam Hines.

The baby, Ayla Settles, was found safe.

A man inside the apartment complex told WREG Lloyd showed up holding his sleeping child asking for help.

"He said 'I came to baby momma's house and there were six dudes in the house' and his baby was in there. He said the baby momma wasn't there and that's what made him punch the glass and go in there and take his baby out of the house."

He said Lloyd was crying. He asked to use the phone but never did. He then left with Ayla.

Police said Lloyd suffers from paranoid schizophrenia and has an "extensive criminal history."

Back in February, Lloyd was charged with assault for allegedly beating the mother of his child, but those charges were dropped. Police said at that time, he had several active warrants.

In 2016, he received a three-year suspended sentence for aggravated burglary.

Lloyd was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary.
