JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville man is in jail after police say he kidnapped his own child.

JSO said the abduction happened late Sunday night at the Maple Crest Townhomes on the Northside.

They said Percy Wilson forced his way into the mother's apartment. Once inside he fired a gun and took his 2-month-old son.

Wilson was eventually located on East 21st street.

The child was checked out by JFRD and returned to Wilson's mother.

Wilson is now facing charges of kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Investigators said he has a history of mental illness.

"He has a history of mental illness" yet some female saw it "right" to breed with it. This a good example of what is happening in society. Probably has other baby mammas too. My heart aches for the children that are born to those that "appear" to have no ambition beyond making said children.
