Posted Tuesday, August 5th 2014 @ 7am

A man suspected of abducting a baby girl in Santa Barbara – prompting an AMBER Alert in San Diego County for the child – is in custody after a SWAT standoff in San Ysidro.

The 6-month-old girl was found safe. Her father, 28-year-old Joshua Ivan Martinez, is suspected of kidnapping her and was taken into custody less than a mile away from the border after a an hour and a half standoff with police.

Authorities issued the AMBER Alert earlier Monday, believing the two were possibly headed to Mexico.
