NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The father of a six-month-old boy was arrested Thursday, one day after he took his son without the mother's permission, prompting an Amber Alert Wednesday night. The boy was soon found and the Amber Alert was called off. 

The child, Daniel Quinteros, was taken by his father Bryan Quinteros, 19, police said, after a physical alteration with the child's mother. 

Bryan Quinteros was arrested Thursday for taking the child without his mother's permission. Bryan Quinteros was taken into custody in Uniondale Thursday afternoon. 

Bryan Quinteros is charged with criminal contempt and endangering the welfare of a child. He’s being held overnight in jail and scheduled for arraignment Friday.
