KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A father is charged after authorities say he left his baby alone near a busy street to run from police Tuesday afternoon.

Bryant E. Robinson, 46, is charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest.

The incident happened at 56th Street and Highland Avenue.

Kansas City, MO, police say a man was walking down the street carrying his 1-year-old little girl when a police car pulled up next to him. That's when he put the baby down and took off running.

Police caught up with Robinson two blocks east at 56th Street and Michigan Avenue and took him into custody.

Officers said Robinson is well-known to them and they recognized him when they saw him on the street. The day before police responded to a domestic call where the baby's mother said he'd violated an order of protection. It turned out that order was not valid, but Robinson was wanted on several outstanding warrants, so investigators were looking for him.

A witness said it didn't look like the man dropped the baby or threw her. She said he lowered her down, but it's where he left her alone that could likely get him in trouble.

"We do have quite a bit of traffic going up and down the street and anything could have happened to her. She could have just walked out in the street and I might not have gotten there in time, anybody might not have gotten there in time to get her. I'm just glad that I was here and able to help," said Decima Neal.

Neal held the baby until emergency responders got to the area to take her. The little girl was not hurt.
