ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Police say he took the little girls against their mother's will, then ran from police.  Police say 22-year-old Kyle Coklow took the one and two year old girl's from their mother's home on Nottingham Way around 8:00AM Tuesday. 

Two hours later, Police found the car with the two children inside at the America's Best Value Motel, and spotted Coklow hiding in the parking lot.

Police chased him on foot to the Superior Creek Lodge across the street. The chase ended when Coklow ran right into Tammy Sadler's room. 

"Oh, my God. I didn't know who it was," said Sadler. "It scared the mess out of me. I was, like, who is this? The next thing I see the Police Officers at the door doing their job with their guns drawn. One of the them was hollering for us to get out of the room."

Police say the two children were unhurt. Coklow is in the Dougherty County Jail.
