Lee allegedly entered the unlocked backdoor of the woman’s Orangeburg home on May 20, according to an incident report.

Warrants allege he “presented a firearm at the mother of his child and demanded that she give their child to him.” He allegedly took the child at gunpoint.

Lee doesn’t have any custodial rights to the child, according to warrants.

Neither the child nor the mother were hurt.

If convicted on both charges, Lee could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine.
