He allegedly fled with the two children and carjacked a 2005 Honda Accord a few blocks away. The car’s driver wasn’t hurt and ran away from the suspect.

Police put out an Amber Alert while Edwards fled , but he abandoned the car in Harlem, leaving the children in the back seat. Officers found the kids unharmed inside the car.
