Dover police have charged a Wilmington man with grabbing a boy from a backyard swingset. Police say 45-year-old Alfonso Rondo walked into the back yard of a home on Miller Drive on Saturday and grabbed a boy playing on his swingset.

Rondo carried the boy down the street, but police say he let the boy go when neighbors who witnessed the incident confronted him. Rondo was arrested when officers arrived a short time later and charged with second-degree kidnapping and second-degree trespassing.

Police say because Rondo was intoxicated when he was arrested, he was not immediately arraigned and bond information was not yet available.
