Devin Chandler is recovering at Riley Hospital for Children after his father allegedly stabbed him and threw him out of a car in the 2300 block of Hermitage Court late Wednesday, Detective Jim Thiele said this morning.
Police spent the night searching for Kevin Chandler, 31, after he fled in a 2001 blue Chevrolet Malibu. Officers searched all of Chandler’s known hangouts but have yet to locate him, Speedway Police Capt. Charles Upchurch said this morning.
“If we don’t locate him, we’ll take the case to the prosecutor and try to have the (arrest) warrant issued,” Upchurch said.
The boy’s parents were getting ready to drive to a friend’s house at about 9:50 p.m. Wednesday when the his mother, Angela Limbrock, realized the baby’s car seat was still in their apartment.
Limbrock, 31, handed Devin to Chandler, who was sitting in the back seat, and left to get the car seat.
“As Limbrock exited the vehicle, she heard Chandler say ‘You bastard,’ ” Officer Michael J. Hart wrote in a police report. “Limbrock stated she turned around and Kevin Chandler threw the child, Devin Chandler, out of the vehicle. As Limbrock picked up the child, she observed a knife in (Devin’s) back.”
Police found the car in the Hermitage Apartments parking lot about 1:15 a.m., police said. The vehicle has been impounded.
Chandler has been arrested several times for crimes including domestic battery, auto theft and driving while intoxicated. Records show he served time in Indiana prison for cocaine possession and carrying an unlicensed firearm near school property.
On May 5, 2005, Police arrested Chandler after he allegedly kicked Limbrock in the head and body. In May 2003, Chandler was arrested after police said he displayed a weapon and broke into Limbrock’s apartment.
