A Bronx man is facing several charges Monday after kidnapping his two children.

According to police, 43-year-old Michael Gamble allegedly beat and sexually assaulted his estranged wife in a back room where she works in Queens. Police say Gamble then drove to The Bronx where he kidnapped their two children, ages 4 and 6. A nationwide Amber Alert was issued soon after Gamble took off. According to police, a relative delivered the children to a local precinct in The Bronx several hours later.

Gamble turned himself in to the police Monday morning. He was charged with rape, assault, unlawful imprisonment and custodial interference. Both children were returned unharmed.
