Father recently released from jail arrested after taking his child from P.S. 97
A P.S. 97 student, who was reported missing earlier Monday, has been reunited with his mother after authorities say his father took him from school.
Police say Amoury Deleon, who was recently released from jail, walked into P.S. 97, found his 7-year-old son and left with him. The school contacted the police, who later found Deleon with the boy. Deleon was arrested for violating an order of protection and has been charged with custodial interference and violation of an order of protection.
Some parents are worried about security at the school, wondering how Deleon was able to just leave the school with the child. Department of School officials say security procedures at the school will be re-evaluated.
