An Amber Alert was canceled in Pennsylvania after police took 23-year-old Hostin Perez-Corza into custody and found his two daughters, 6-year-old Dania Perez and 8-year-old Janeth Perez.

NBC Philadelphia reported that the girls were found safe inside a hotel at 10 a.m. on Friday.

The Amber Alert was issued overnight in Pennsylvania after Perez-Corza allegedly placed a gun up to a woman’s head, taking their two daughters.

The woman–the two daughters’ mother–fled the scene after the incident.

According to Philly.com, Perez-Corza was also wanted for aggravated assault and other offenses.

The kids were taken from their West Reading, Penn., home.
