The Odessa Police Department is looking for a 32-year-old man reportedly involved in kidnapping and assaulting his girlfriend.

The man has been identified as Jonathan Andrew Castillo and he’s wanted for kidnapping, a third-degree felony and assault (family violence), class A misdemeanor.

The reported kidnapping happened at 7:46 a.m. Saturday in the 4200 block of North Grandview, an OPD press release detailed.

A complainant reportedly saw a man, later identified as Castillo, assault a 37-year-old woman and force her into a vehicle while she was screaming. The complainant reportedly attempted to help the woman but Castillo assaulted the complainant in the neck.

OPD found the 37-year-old woman at a hotel, the press release stated. The woman stated Castillo was her boyfriend and had taken her against her will.

A photo of Castillo has been released by OPD and can be seen at tinyurl.com/rtfcsdz.
