Bay Area law enforcement fanned out Wednesday morning searching for a baby boy who had been taken by his father.

In the end, the two men police were looking for turned themselves in after talking to their mother. They went to the Antioch Police Department with the child, who police say is safe.

The two-and-a-half month old boy's father and uncle have been arrested on suspicion of abducting the infant, Pleasanton police  said.

Before they surrendered, Dimiante and Kelandre Dunn were spotted with the baby in the car in Pleasanton driving on Hopyard Road in a 1988 white Oldsmobile with 22-inch chrome wheels.

Pleasanton police Sgt. Barry Mickleburgh said the abduction happened at about 4:45 a.m. in the area of Holland Drive and Payne Road. He said police received near-simultaneous calls from the distraught mother and from neighbors reporting a disturbance

The child's mother says she was driving from her home in Dublin to drop the baby off at a friend's house in Pleasanton.

Along the route, she said 18-year-old Dimiante Dunn, the child's father, stood in front of her car and forced her to stop.

The mother told police that her baby, Davion Bryceon Dunn, was strapped in a car seat in the back of a car when the boy's father approached and assaulted her.

Kalandre Dunn, 21, was with him and assaulted a woman who was sitting in the car's backseat, Mickleburgh  said.

 "The suspect's brother entered the backseat of the car, battered  the other woman in the car, removed her from the car and removed the child from the car," Mickleburgh said.

The baby's mother, who is 19, and the other woman, who is 18, suffered  minor injuries but didn't require hospitalization, Mickleburgh said.

Anyone who has information on the crime is  asked to call Pleasanton police at 925-931-5100
