A Dallas man who is accused of abducting and drowning his two sons has been arraigned.

Naim Muhammad, 32, is facing capital murder charges, the Associated Press reported.

Muhammad forced his 3- and 5-year-old sons and their mother into his car on Monday, the Dallas County Magistrate Nan Lollar said, the AP reported.

The woman was taking her children to school.

She jumped out of the car when it stopped at an intersection. She alerted a nearby police person while the car jumped a curb and left, according to a police report, CBS News reported.

The officer did not chase the suspect but did call police, according to the report.

The 5-year-old, also named Naim, was supposed to attend his first day of kindergarten, but he never came, a spokesperson for the school said, CBS station KDFW reported.

Muhammad also has a one-year-old son and tried to take him as well on Monday, police said.  

Public records show that Muhammad has prior convictions that include marijuana possession and assault with a deadly weapon, CBS News reported.
