Brooklyn Man Charged In Norwalk 'Kidnapping'

NORWALK, Conn. – A Brooklyn man making a delivery in Norwalk recently suspected he would not get paid for his work, so he quickly left the scene with his cargo – a human being.

Jesus Rojas, 21, kept the woman in Brooklyn for two days before bringing her back to Norwalk, Norwalk Police say. When Rojas delivered her safe and sound he was arrested for what Sgt. James Boff said was "basically kidnapping."

Boff relayed the following account:

The woman is an illegal alien from Mexico. A deal had been made to transport her from Arizona to her daughter's Soundview Avenue home for $550, $100 of which was paid in advance. She was taken to Brooklyn by another man, and Rojas was given the chore of completing her journey last week.

The daughter saw Rojas pull into her driveway and saw her mother in the vehicle with him. Then Rojas turned around and left, with her mother still in the car. The daughter became scared and called police.

Rojas had been told to leave and not to come back until he was given the $450 he was owed. When he returned Monday he was arrested and charged with unlawful restraint first degree, forgery second degree and criminal impersonation. Bond was $100,000.
