ALHAMBRA — A hearing was delayed Friday for a Monterey Park man accused of kidnapping a young San Gabriel Valley woman for ransom, cutting her throat and leaving her for dead in the desert, officials said.
DeQiang Song, 24, is charged with kidnapping for ransom and attempted murder in connection with the Sept. 8 incident.
An arraignment was scheduled for him Friday in Alhambra Superior Court, however it was continued to Nov. 22, court officials said.
Song allegedly kidnapped the woman, with whom he was acquainted, after taking her on a shopping trip in Arcadia, investigators said.
He allegedly bound her, demanded ransom from her father via telephone, cut her throat and abandoned her in a remote area of desert off the 15 Freeway between Apple Valley and Victorville.
The badly wounded woman walked about half a mile to the nearest home for help, officials said.
Detectives, who authorities said had been working with the woman’s father, jailed Song as tried to pick up ransom money in San Gabriel.
According to sheriff’s booking records, Song is being held in lieu of $2,050,000 bail at the Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles.
