But just one day later, police showed up at the Nikolayevs’ home with Child Protective Services (CPS) representatives. Alex met the authorities outside, wondering what multiple squad cars were doing at his house.

“I was pushed against the building, smacked down,” Alex said.“I said,‘Am I being placed under arrest?’ He smacked me to the ground and yelled out ‘I think I got the keys to the house!’”

Alex later told reporters,“It doesn’t seem like parents have any rights whatsoever.”

During the commotion in the driveway Anna had set up a camera pointing at the door. At least four police officers, who did not have a warrant, are shown on film barging into the home followed by CPS workers demanding Sammy.

“I’m going to grab your baby, and don’t resist, and don’t fight me, okay?” one policeman can be heard telling Anna.

Explanations have been hard to come by. Law enforcement referred media requests to CPS, who refused to offer a definitive statement other than claiming Sammy was taken because of “severe neglect,” a vague definition the Nikolayevs have denied.

“We conduct a risk assessment of the child’s safety and rely heavily on the direction of health care providers,” CPS said.

The Nikolayevs and their attorney, Joe Weinberger, expressed disbelief that Sammy was still in the hospital without their consent during an interview with the ABC affiliate.

“It’s absolutely amazing to me how a government can reach out and snatch a child after a doctor said there’s not an issue,” Weinberger said.“As we’ve seen, there is no emergency situation in this case...I can’t imagine having my baby ripped from my arms.”

Attorney Weinberger provided RT viewers with more details into the case, saying that the entire case against the Nikolayev family was “manufactured.”

“They were provided with medical evidence that said that the baby was fine to be taken home and despite this, they manufactured an excuse to take this baby away,” Weinberger said

The initial physician who examined the child, Weinberger believes, is partly responsible for the situation.

“I think what it comes down to is that parents didn’t appreciate the opinion of the doctor in a hospital and wanted to seek a second opinion,” attorney said.

But the lawyer also admits that the parents are partly responsible for the CPS course of action.

“The mistake that they made was without signing out the child, they left the hospital and went to a different hospital and in my opinion what they did upset the initial physician and he decided to make a call to the Child Protective Services and say that there’s a child who is in imminent danger of death. What he did not know at that time was that they had gone to a second hospital and a different doctor said- no, it is not an issue.”

A court hearing is scheduled for Monday, April 29.
