MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities issued an amber alert Thursday night after they say an armed man abducted a 17-month-old girl.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says 31-year-old George Jermaine Rutledge (pictured to the left) kidnapped Nahla Sky Rutledge (pictured below). George Rutledge is the girl’s non-custodial father, and he assaulted the girl’s mother during the abduction, authorities say.

Rutledge is described as being 5-feet, 10-inches-tall, 165 pounds, heavily tattooed, wearing a blue Dickey two-piece and a black coat with a Cadillac emblem on the back. He has a gunshot wound on his left abdomen.

If you see him or have any information on his whereabouts, call 911.

Nahla Sky Rutledge was last seen wearing a pink top and gray, leopard-pattern pants. She was not wearing shoes or a jacket and has a rash on her hands and legs, authorities say.
