Robbery Suspect Takes Infant Hostage, Barricades Against Sacramento SWAT

An armed robbery suspect who is holding a 16-month-old boy hostage in an Arden Way apartment is being "uncooperative," a Sacramento sheriff's spokesman said at noon today.

Anthony Alvarez, 26, has become "uncooperative" with officers who are trying to get him to give up and free the boy, the son of the suspect's cousin, said Sgt. Tim Curran.
