State and local police managed to thwart a kidnapping attempt that began after the suspect's vehicle was spotted on I-95 in Bridgeport.
The incident began early Friday, March 15, when a woman was dropping a child off at school, said Bridgeport Police Spokeswoman Rowena White.
The female was allegedly forced into a vehicle by an estranged boyfriend and taken from the scene, she said.
Witnesses immediately contacted police and detectives and school resource officers worked together to gather information and locate the victim and offender.
Preparations were being made to initiate a Silver Alert when the suspect's vehicle was located by Norwalk and Connecticut State Police while traveling south on I-95 in Norwalk, White said.
The suspect was taken into custody without incident in Darien, and the victim was found unharmed in the vehicle.
"The offender is known to detectives and we were working with the victim to obtain an arrest warrant for an earlier incident, prior to today's events," she added.
No further information was available at this time.
