WICHITA, Kan. - Wichita police say a 20-year-old man has been arrested after placing a loaded, cocked gun in a car seat with his infant daughter.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1qlEZA9 ) reports the man was arrested late Sunday night after he burst into a house and demanded at gunpoint to be given the girl.

Police say he "threatened to shoot everyone if he did not get his baby" and pointed the gun at several people inside the home.

Police say he put the baby in a car seat and placed his gun next to her and tried to leave. Officers were called to the scene and arrested him there.

The man was booked into Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of aggravated assault with a firearm, aggravated burglary and child endangerment.
