Waterbury Man Accused of Kidnapping 5-Year-Old

Waterbury Police

Alexis Quendo-Colon has been charged with kidnapping.

A Waterbury man has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and risk of injury to a child after a 5-year-old girl said he pulled down her underwear and tried to do “bad things” to her, according to local police.

Police arrested  Alexis Oquendo-Colon , 23, on Sunday, according to court records.

The girl’s mother called police on Sunday after her daughter said Oquendo-Colon  pulled her into an apartment when she went to play with another girl and ripped her underwear, according to police.

The girl told police she was able to scream, get away from Oquendo-Colon  and run home, police said.

According to police, investigators found ripped pair of underwear on the kitchen floor of the girl’s home.

Oquendo-Colon  does not have a criminal history, according to police.  Bond was set at $250,000 and he remains in custody.

Oquendo-Colon’s attorney, Thomas Mitchell-Hoffler, told the Waterbury Republican American that his client has mental health issues and his family is concerned that the issues might get worse if he remains in prison.
