Man accused of breaking into ex-wife’s Upland home, kidnapping her
A 39-year-old man is accused of breaking into his ex-wife’s Upland home early Saturday and forcing her into his car, triggering a five-hour, multi-city manhunt, police said.
The Upland Police Department responded to a disturbance call at 5:08 a.m. in the 400 block of North 10th Avenue in Upland, according to an Upland police news release.
Police say that after Juan Carlos Villagomez-Gonzalez, 39, forced his ex-wife into the car, he left — leaving the woman’s children alone in the house.
After about five hours, police located the victim and, soon thereafter, Villagomez-Gonzalez, who was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping.
