Police Return California Man To Connecticut To Face Kidnap Charges
A California man been arrested in Connecticut after waiving extradition from California in a case involving last month’s kidnapping of a 14-year-old girl.
The FBI helped Hamden police identify a California telephone number which led them to 28-year-old Nathan Salas. Authorities say he had met the teen online. She left a suicide note for her parents and flew cross-country with him.
Salas said at the time he thought he was helping her escape an abusive situation.
A Hamden detective and an investigator flew to California to pick up Salas, and returned to Connecticut early Friday morning.
