Middletown man is accused of kidnapping a Wallingford woman Tuesday and holding her in his home for 16 hours, police said.

At about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday, Kevin Louis Zaluski, 31, of Middletown forced the woman into his car, which was parked in front of her house, police said. He physically assaulted her and threatened to hurt her again if she attempted to run, she said.
