Man Wanted for Kidnapping, Assault in Reading, Massachusetts

Police are looking for a Massachusetts man who is wanted on serious charges.

Authorities say 30-year-old Brian English of Reading is accused of kidnapping, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, witness intimidation and larceny.

"He's always said 'Hi' to us," said neighbor Lauren Gallagher. "He's never been an issue for us."

Early Easter morning, police swarmed a home on Hillside Avenue, steps away from Reading High School.

That same day, English wrote the following message on his Facebook page:

"I'm [outtie] peace to all my real Boyz. :lost my mind did something stupid."

Reading Police did not elaborate Sunday on the nature of the alleged crime. They did, however, say this was an isolated incident and that the community is safe.

English is described as being about 6 feet tall and 190 pounds with a medium build. His eyes and hair are brown.

It is believed that English is driving a 1999 red Ford Explorer with a license plate reading "783-YD2."

Anyone with information is asked to call Reading Police at (781) 944-1212.
