A man is in custody after allegedly stabbing his wife and kidnapping his 4 year-old daughter Sunday morning.

According to a county spokesperson, Atlanta Police are also looking into a domestic incident related to the kidnapping.

Police say 33 year-old Marlon Dobbins went to the home of his 4 year-old daughter's mother, where he allegedly assaulted her. After that, Dobbins drove to the home of his daughter's aunt in Decatur.

Dobbins allegedly forced his way into that home and told the aunt he was there to get his daughter. 

After taking off with his daughter, police were able to catch up with Dobbins after the young girl was able to alert officers by using the "Find my phone" app. Police located Dobbins after he returned to his home in Cobb County. 

The young girl was safe and unharmed.

At last check, the daughter's mother was in the hospital in serious but stable condition.
