While in police custody and on his way to jail, David Hernandez said he did not abduct a 4-year-old Albuquerque girl.

Hernandez said the incident is a misunderstanding, but he wouldn’t give details, or respond to questions about his whereabouts during the incident on Wednesday.

Albuquerque police said Hernandez kidnapped the girl from a North Valley apartment.

He reportedly released the girl moments before her mother started chasing him.

Today, police interviewed Hernandez before he was booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center.
