Felisa and Alec Blazek, of New Hampshire, have been charged with kidnapping after allegedly holding a woman captive for 5 days
A mother and son from New Hampshire have been arrested and charged with kidnapping after they allegedly held the man’s girlfriend captive for five days, say police.
Alec Blazek, 24, and his mother, Felisa Blazek, 49, of Windham, allegedly held the unidentified woman in their home from Feb. 10 through Feb. 15, Windham Police Capt. Mike Caron tells PEOPLE.
While the woman, 25, was being held against her will in their home, Alec Blazek allegedly physically assaulted her, Caron says.
She was able to escape when the three were driving together on Feb. 15, he says.
“She managed to jump out of the car at an intersection,” he says. “She tried to evade them and luckily a motorist saw her and brought her to the Salem P.D.”
Alec Blazek was arrested on Feb. 26 after turning himself in on a warrant, says Caron.
He is charged with five counts of domestic violence simple assault, one count of domestic violence strangulation and one count of kidnapping.
His mother was arrested the same day and charged with kidnapping.
They were both released that day on their own recognizance, says Caron.
It is unclear if they have retained attorneys who can speak on their behalf. They have not yet entered pleas.
They are scheduled to appear in Rockingham Superior Court on March 12.
