By Alana Cerrone
Pawtucket police responded to a call from a woman around 8:00 Saturday morning. When officers arrived to the home on 442 Mineral Spring Ave., the woman said her boyfriend, Barrolle Z Shar, 32, had attacked and choked her.
Then, she said, Shar took their two children, ages 3 and 2, and left with them. She claimed Shar is very violent and feared for her kids' safety.
Pawtucket Police detectives and RI State Police were set to issue an Amber Alert for the two children, when detectives learned that Shar may have been in Providence. RI State Police found him at the Providence address and arrested him. The children were found unharmed.
Shar will be held and arraigned before a Bail Commissioner; he is charged with several violations including Assault with Intent to Murder and Domestic Assault by Strangulation.
