      Court documents stated the mother told officers that she did not allow 36-year-old Cavazos into the house or to take their two and a half-year-old son.

      The woman had a protective order against Cavazos.

      Authorities said Cavazos fled the scene with his son in his pickup truck.

      Authorities charged Cavazos with kidnapping, resisting arrest, burglary of habitation with intent to commit felony other than theft and violation of protective order by trespassing.

      A bond of $59,500 was set for Cavazos.
