It was recently reported in the Orange County Register that a purported gang member is wanted in the kidnapping of his ex-girlfriend. Rudy Castellon, 23, allegedly went to his ex-girlfriend’s parent’s house. The mother refused to let Castellon see her daughter. Castellon is then accused of displaying a handgun and forcing his way into the home. Castellon allegedly pushed the girlfriend down the street. She returned the next day. Castellon is wanted on suspicion of kidnapping.

Under California Penal Code 207, kidnapping is committed when a person forcibly, or by any other means of instilling fear, steal or takes, or holds, detains, or arrests any person in this state, and carries the person into another country, state, or county, or into another part of the same county.
