DADEVILLE, AL (WSFA) - The Tallapoosa County Sheriff's Department says the suspect in an early Monday morning burglary/assault against his ex-girlfriend has turned himself in to authorities. The two children who were taken in the process were located and are safe.

Alan Lebron Brown, 28, turned himself in to Tallapoosa County Sheriff's Deputies Tuesday afternoon. His children, Destiny, 4, and Caleb, 2, were located and taken into protective custody. According to Brown's attorney, the children are now in the care of his mother.

The Tallapoosa County Sheriff's Department said the burglary/domestic assault happened at 2:30am Monday at a home on Pine Ridge.

Brown is now charged with Burglary 1st Degree, Domestic Violence 2nd Degree, and Violation of a Protection Order. He's being held pending a bond hearing.

The victim, Brown's ex-girlfriend, called police after Brown left with the children in the wee hours of Monday morning. The mom was taken to East Alabama Medical Center for treatment from injuries she sustained in the assault. Police say she suffered facial injuries but was eventually released from the hospital.

An Amber Alert was never issued because the case did not fit the criteria for one, according to authorities. Brown had legal custody of the children, but a custody battle was playing out in Tennessee.
