BRIDGEPORT - ? Police are searching for a man they say abducted his two children in Hartford and threatened to kill them in a domestic dispute.

Vinroy Hines, 30, reportedly assaulted the mother of the girls and forced her into a car with the children, ages 20 months and 4 months. He reportedly planned to kill them all before committing suicide. The mother got away, but not before Hines allegedly took the girls.
