(Newser) – Two men have been arrested following a double homicide and reported abduction, and now, police have found the 2-year-old child believed to have been kidnapped. Police issued an Amber Alert yesterday when Malcolm Crowell, 22, allegedly fled a house in Johnston, Rhode Island, after two women were killed; he was alleged to have taken toddler Isaih Perez with him. Police nabbed Crowell before the toddler was discovered in Providence, "just walking on the sidewalk," a police rep says, per CNN.

"We don't know he was dropped off, if he was left off there, we don't have any particulars at this time," says the rep. Isaih seems to be healthy but was taken to a hospital for a checkup. State and local police differ on whether Crowell is still suspected of taking the toddler, the Providence Journal reports. Police also arrested Daniel Rodriguez, a man in his late twenties. Both Rodriguez and Crowell knew the murder victims and the child, police say. One of the victims was reportedly Isaih's mother.
