A Bridgeport man has been charged with kidnapping after police said he was found in Hamden with a victim in his car Saturday night.
Perry Deschazo, 26, of Bridgeport, faces charges including kidnapping, home invasion, stalking, threatening, and criminal violation of a protective order.
Hamden police said that around 11:30 p.m. they responded to an apartment on Goodrich Street after being contacted by the Bridgeport Police Department about a possible abduction. Bridgeport cautioned that Deschazo was known to carry firearms and was reported to be armed with a knife. He and the victim were last seen in a maroon Nissan Altima.
When officers responded they spotted the suspect vehicle driving away from the building and pursued. The vehicle was eventually stopped on Cherry Ann Street, where police found a victim with Deshazo in the vehicle. The victim was not harmed, police said.
Deschazo was arrested and held on a $2.5 million bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
