Wanted Kidnap Suspect Arrested

Jose Castillo, who was found and arrested  for the assault and kidnapping of his ex-girlfriend last weekend, is being arraigned today at the Pasadena Superior Court.

Police have been on the hunt for Castillo since the incident took place on Thursday, May 27th at a South Lake Avenue parking structure. “He went into hiding, making it challenging to apprehend him right away,” said Detective Lieutenant Tracey Ibarra. Since his arrest, Castillo has been held at the Los Angeles County Jail on a $400,000 bail. In addition to domestic violence and kidnapping charges, Castillo is suspected of making terrorist threats.
