HALTOM CITY, Texas (AP) — Authorities have identified the man they say threatened to detonate a bomb at a North Texas apartment complex where his baby sitter lives after learning his child was injured while in her care.

They said Tuesday that 29-year-old Javier Payan of Watauga is charged with making a terroristic threat. He was taken to the North Richland Hills jail but is no longer being held.

Police say they found an upset Payan at the complex Monday. He refused to exit his vehicle and threatened to discharge an explosive. He surrendered hours later and no device was found.

The child remained at a hospital Tuesday and a condition was not available.

Police say the unidentified baby sitter is in custody Tuesday facing a charge of injury to a child.
