Tawfik Dimion Hart, 34, grabbed his daughter, Janessa, from inside a home and “shoved” a caregiver out of the way as he ran off with the child, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.
Police also believe Hart has his 10-month-old son, Tawfik Dimion Hart Jr., with him.
The Sheriff’s Office believes Hart may be driving to Tifton County, Ga., in a 2008 Cadillac DeVille. The vehicle is white with a red roof and has Georgia tags, police said.
The children are not believed to be in any danger, police said. Hart doesn’t have any court-ordered restrictions against him in regard to his children.
Hart faces charges of burglary with battery and interference with child custody, WFLA-TV reported.
Anyone with information about the suspect should contact 911 or the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office at (813) 247-8200.
