MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — New Hampshire authorities are searching for a woman in connection with an alleged kidnapping and assault reported over the weekend.
On Friday night, Manchester Police Department received information about a male victim who had been abducted and left in Derry, New Hampshire.
"The male victim reported that earlier that day he had been taken from a residence at knife point and forced into a vehicle where his wallet and cellular phone were taken," said MPD in a statement.
"The victim was then taken to several locations before being driven to Derry," the statement continued. "The victim was then forced to remove his clothing, had his wrists and feet bound and assaulted before being left tied to a tree. The victim managed to free himself and then contacted the police."
The two suspects involved were identified as 37-year-old Ronald Betances, who was taken into police custody on Saturday night, and 29-year-old Ariel Dupuis of Manchester, who has outstanding warrants for her arrest.
Police said the victim and the suspects knew each other, and this was not a random act.
MPD said there is no threat to the public at this time, and asked anyone with information about the whereabouts of Dupuis to contact Manchester police at 603-668-8711.
