The El Paso County Sheriff's Office is looking for a man who prompted an Amber Alert late Wednesday night.
Erik Gonzalaz is accused of beating his girlfriend and taking her 3 kids. He later dropped them off at their grandmother's house.
Deputies think Gonzalez may be in the Stratmoor Valley area because that's where the children and the victim's car were found.
Sheriff's officers say Gonzalez has an extensive criminal record including some violence. There are several warrants out for his arrest.
