Man Accused of Kidnapping, Assaulting Girlfriend: Cops

A 36-year-old man is facing kidnapping, burglary and assault charges after allegedly attacking his girlfriend and holding her captive at an apartment in Brooklyn, Connecticut on Monday.

State police were called to 11A Elm Street in Brooklyn on Monday, where a woman ran out injured and bleeding and told them her boyfriend had held her there and assaulted her.

Troopers searched for her boyfriend, identified as Jason Latour, 36, but couldn't find him in the house. State police said Latour's mother, Shelia Jendreweski, 57, who lives at 11A Elm Street, refused to help track him down.

After securing an arrest warrant for Latour, police went back to the apartment Tuesday. Latour tried to get away again by running into the basement and behind a wall into a neighboring basement, but troopers managed to catch him, police said.

Latour was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree kidnapping, unlawful restraint, second-degree burglary, third-degree assault, second-degree threatening and second-degree breach of peace. He was held on $200,000 bond and is due in court Wednesday.

Jendreweski was also arrested. She was charged with interfering with police and hindering prosecution and was held on $5,000 bond.
