KC-MO 'Amber Alert' Ends With Baby Found Safe- Suspect Holed Up in Northland House

A stabbing and the abduction of a toddler from an Old Northeast Kansas City MO residence ended around 5 a.m. when the car the suspect took as well as the toddler- was located near Worlds of Fun.

The incident started after 2 a.m. Monday morning at 3536 Sunrise Drive when 24-year-old Eric D. Yeager stabbed his girlfriend in the neck- then took her 4-month-old son John Michael Glorioso and left in the girlfriend's car.

The unnamed girlfriend 's injury was deemed "serious" by police.

Around 5 a.m.- KC-MO police located the suspect vehicle with the baby still inside near Northeast 51st Street and North Corrington- but Yeager ran away.

The infant was taken by EMS to Children's Mercy Hospital for a check-up- but is believed to be otherwise uninjured.

Police are currently surrounding a house in the 5000 block of North Crystal where Yeager is reportedly holed-up in and have called an "Operation-100."

UPDATE - 10 a.m.- The Operation-100 is still on-going at the house in the 5000 block of North Crystal where the Amber Alert suspect Eric Yeager is barricaded.

KC-MO police tactical officers continue to be in phone contact with Yeager- but the man refuses to exit the house.

As a side note- at 6:15 a.m.- a member of a family was "taken into custody" at the Op-100 scene.

It is unknown if the family member was Yeager's or the family from where the infant was taken earlier in Old Northeast KC-MO..

UPDATE - 10:57 A.M.- KC-MO police tactical officers are preparing to shoot tear gas into the house where Amber Alert suspect Yeager is holed-up.

UPDATE - 12:45 P.M.- KC-MO police tactical officers have fire at least several rounds of tear gas into the house where suspect Yeager is- yet the susupect in the early-morning stabbing of his girlfriend and kidnapping of the woman's son hasn't come out.

Police have at least 2 of their "robots" with cameras inside the house- but Yeager manages to elude them as well.

UPDATE - 1:45 P.M.- Suspect Eric Yeager is in police custody without incident at this time and is being transported by KCFD-EMS to an area hospital to check him for his exposure for tear gas.

This ends this episode of Operation-100- brought to you by the fine and able officers of the KC-MO Police department.
