Not guilty plea in alleged attack on son

By The Frederick (Md.) News-Post

A man who allegedly tried to suffocate his 19-month-old son in September has pleaded not criminally responsible.

Thirty-three-year-old Alton Ambush of Frederick entered the plea Tuesday. He is charged with second-degree assault and other offenses in the Sept. 17 attack on his son.

Frederick County District Judge Janice Rodnick Ambrose accepted Ambush's plea and postponed the case for Ambush to undergo an evaluation at a facility of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

Police say they were called to a home on Sept. 17 and found Ambush attempting to suffocate his son. Police say they eventually got the father to let go of his son. The boy recovered after being treated at a hospital.
