Kidnapping suspect in custody
Submitted By Fremont PD
On Monday, June 10th at approximately 7:05 a.m. Fremont Police were called to an "ascertain the problem" call in the area of Isherwood Way and Chaplin Drive. Neighbors reported that a 16-year-old female contacted them, reporting that a man was chasing her with a knife.
Officers arrived and learned that the victim had driven to Lucky's at the Brookvale Shopping Center shortly before 7:00 a.m., parked her vehicle and entered the store. While she was in the store, a suspect entered the victim's car and hid in the back seat. The victim returned to her car and began to drive off. Shortly thereafter, the suspect produced a knife and began giving the victim instructions to drive to a remote location in the area of Isherwood and Chaplin.
It is believed the intent of the abduction was to commit a sexual assault. As the victim was in the process of parking the car, she was able escape from the vehicle and ran to a neighboring home where she sought refuge from the resident who called police. The neighbor also immediately activated the panic feature on her residential alarm. Several officers and detectives immediately responded to the call.
Officers found the victim's vehicle sitting on Isherwood Drive. Based on evidence collected at the scene of the vehicle, Detectives were able to identify Aron Kumar Roy (5'3", 125 lbs.), a 23 year old Fremont resident, as the suspect. He was located at his workplace (4800 block of Dublin Blvd., Dublin, CA) and arrested at approximately 6:00 p.m.
Roy was booked into the Fremont Jail on the following six felony charges: kidnapping, kidnapping with the intent to commit rape, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with intent to commit a sex offense, false imprisonment and robbery. He is being held without bail. The victim was not physically harmed during the incident.
