Pasadena man suspected of attacking, trying to kidnap ex-girlfriend

PASADENA — Police are searching for a 53-year-old man who allegedly beat and tried to kidnap his ex-girlfriend, authorities said Friday.
Jose Castillo of Pasadena is being sough in connection with the alleged attack, Pasadena police Lt. Keith Jones said.
At about 1:07 p.m. Thursday a 45-year-old female Hispanic, of Temple City, was waiting at a bus stop in the 200 block of South Lake Avenue when Castillo allegedly grabbed her by the hair and began striking her, Pasadena Police Lt. Chris Russ said.
The woman suffered minor bruising to her face and arms and also complained of back pain, he said.
After a struggle, the man dragged her through a nearby parking lot and attempted to force her into his 2000 Honda Odyssey, but he fled on foot after several passersby came to her assistance, Russ said.
Castillo and the woman apparently ended a relationship several years ago, Jones said.
Castillo is described as a 5-foot-6-inch male Hispanic weighing 186 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pasadena Police Department at 626- 744-4241.

    Thankfully the “good samaritans” were there and willing to help the women. If not we could easily be talking about kidnapping and possible murder.
