Walter Antonio Ventura Torres, the 27-year-old man accused of taking four children from their home in Rome on Sunday, is due back in Rome from Huntsville on Thursday afternoon.

An Amber Alert was issued for the children — all under the age of five — on Sunday afternoon.

At 10:30 p.m. later that evening, Huntville Police officers were dispatched to the Texaco Station at 4200 Bob Wallace Avenue in Huntsville after someone reported a man and four children were asking patrons for money.

Torres was arrested after a check showed he was wanted in Georgia on four counts of kidnapping.

He was booked into the Huntsville-Madison County Metro Jail on a fugitive from justice charge…when he is returned to Floyd County he could be facing kidnapping charges
