Woodland police arrest man after alleged kidnapping

By
March 23, 2011 |

Woodland police arrested a 23-year-old man Wednesday on suspicion of kidnapping his estranged wife from her home with the couple’s toddler child in tow.

Reports of a young woman being pulled from her home and forced into a car sent officers to the 100 block of Stone Way at about 11:20 a.m., Sgt. Dan Letamendi said. Witnesses said the suspect, Luis Eduardo Lopez, had gone to the neighborhood looking for his former wife and had been arguing with her through a locked screen door.

“The victim, fearing for her safety, refused to go with Lopez, who then forced his way through the storm door by punching through the screen, reaching in and opening the door from the inside,” Letamendi said in a news release. As the woman tried to close the main door, Lopez allegedly picked her up and carried her to his waiting car, where the couple’s 2-year-old child was strapped inside.

The pair were gone by the time police arrived, but officers were able to make contact via cell phone with Lopez, who agreed to return to the neighborhood with his estranged wife, Letamendi said. He was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, burglary and domestic violence, and lodged at the Yolo County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Police reunited the child with the mother, Letamendi said.
