A witness told police he saw a woman walking toward the gate with a child in her arms and a man following behind in a car, according to the report.
The witness told police the man got out of the car and began to argue with the woman. The man would not allow the woman to continue walking toward the gate, according to the report. The witness told police the man grabbed the child and began walking toward the car. After military and civilian law enforcement arrived, it was determined the man — a soldier who had just returned from Iraq — should take the matter up with his chain-of-command, according to the report. The woman was referred to social services.
