Fresno Police search for kidnapping suspect

Friday, May 06, 2011

The search is still on for Antonio Salcedo, 21, of Kerman. He is wanted in connection to a violent kidnapping early Thursday morning.

The Fresno County Sheriff's Office said it received an anonymous tip that Salcedo was hiding at a home near Channing and Parkway in West Central Fresno.

After a search of the home, using K-9 units, they only found Salcedo's pick-up truck. Detectives also questioned several people who were inside the home. They were released after being questioned.

The 21-year-old is accused of kidnapping his estranged wife and 3-year-old son Thursday from a home in Kerman. Investigators said Salcedo drove the captives to a motel near Coalinga. While there, according to detectives, Salcedo and his estranged wife began to fight after he caught the 20-year-old woman on the phone with 911 dispatch.

Salcedo allegedly stabbed the little boy with a pair of scissors during a scuffle with his wife. The boy received about 20 stitches to his hand, and will be okay.
