A Virginia man who led police Strasburg on a foot pursuit reportedly threw a two-year-old boy into a creek as he ran, according to WHSV-TV.

According to the Strasburg (VA) Police Department, an officer saw the man driving with his two-year-old son on his lap. When the officer stopped the car, the man — identified as 28-year-old Kyle Steven Sunday — got out of the vehicle and fled.

The man was then seen throwing the child over an embankment into a creek.

One officer discontinued the pursuit and rescued the boy.

A K-9 unit eventually tracked the suspect to a home, where he was arrested. He is now charged with multiple felony counts, including child abuse, reckless driving, and eluding police.

The mother of the boy — reportedly identified as 27-year-old Kristi Ann Letima — has been charged with child neglect and endangerment, obstruction of justice, and making a false report to law enforcement.
