BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say a naked man high on PCP kidnapped his girlfriend’s baby and ran onto a busy highway in Bridgeport, where state troopers took him into the custody. The baby wasn’t harmed.

Thirty-year-old Santos Rodriguez was charged with kidnapping and other crimes after the series of events early Saturday morning. He was ordered held on $100,000 bail.

Rodriguez’s girlfriend told police he was acting erratically Saturday morning. She said he believed someone was after him, called her the devil and threw a Bible at her.

Police say Rodriguez took off his clothes and ran out of the home with her son. State police later received several 911 calls reporting a man running across I-95.

Rodriguez surrendered without incident. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
