— Authorities have arrested the father of a man accused of breaking into his estranged wife's Longmont home, shooting her with a stun gun and pepper spray, and kidnapping the couple's 3-year-old son.

Longmont Police Cmdr. Jeff Satur said the Missouri State Highway Patrol arrested Ronald Turner early Sunday.

Police say 51-year-old Monty Ray Turner assaulted his wife at her Longmont home Saturday and left with his son, Luke Turner. Monty Turner has a protection order prohibiting him from contacting his wife and son.

Ronald Turner, who was arrested as an accessory to the kidnapping, was pulled over outside Springfield, Mo. Satur says the boy and his father might be in a maroon 2001 Dodge Caravan with Colorado tag 576-ZXY; a brown 1997 Ford F350 pickup with Colorado tag 541-YLH or a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Colorado tag 837-UHS.
