Man holds woman against her will overnight

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)  –  New Haven Police have arrested a man they say held his ex-girlfriend against her will from late Saturday night until noon Sunday after the woman’s father told police his daughter was being held hostage.

29 year old William “BJ” Brown of New Haven is charged with home invasion, unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, threatening in the second degree, assault in the third degree and criminal mischief in the second degree.

According to police, an Officer was approached by a man who said his daughter was being held hostage in the 1500 Block of State Street.  When police arrived the victim answered the door as her ex-boyfriend ran to a bedroom.   The victim told police when she returned home Saturday night she was puzzled why her dead bolt was locked seeing that she did not use it because she did not have a key for it.   At that time she entered her apartment through a window where she found Brown inside.

Police say brown has an extensive criminal record with 28 arrests.
