MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Authorities said a Memphis infant has been safely recovered after his father stabbed the child's mother and abducted him.

The Memphis Police Department said 2-month-old Adrian Delk Jr. was found sometime before 8 a.m. Thursday at his paternal grandmother's home, according to WREG in Memphis.. The baby was found only hours after he was taken by his biological father, 24-year-old Adrian Delk, Sr.

Delk Sr. was taken into police custody.

Police said Delk Sr. stabbed the baby's mother several times, and took her to Methodist North Hospital in Memphis before fleeing with the baby around 12:50 a.m. 

Police said the mother was airlifted to the Regional Medical Center in extremely critical condition. She was later listed in non-critical condition.

Police said he had a history of domestic violence and was considered armed and dangerous.

A statewide AMBER alert was issued for the child, but has since been canceled.
