NJ man charged with kidnapping, raping Lehigh Co. woman

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - August 14, 2013

Online court records don't list an attorney for 21-year-old Fredrick Hernandez, of Garfield, N.J. who is accused of assaulting and abducting the woman at her Bethlehem apartment on July 25. He was arrested the next day and had been held in the Bergen County, N.J. jail until he was brought to Pennsylvania Tuesday to be arraigned.

The (Easton) Express-Times reports Hernandez is charged with kidnapping, rape, unlawful restraint and other crimes and remained in the Northampton County Prison unable to post $500,000 bond on Wednesday.

Police say Hernandez held the woman and her 11-month-old child captive.
