Manchester Kidnapping Suspects 2

Three New Hampshire residents are accused of kidnapping after they allegedly held a woman against her will in an apartment and attacked her over the weekend.

Manchester residents Ernesto Mateo, 28, Holly Crawford, 33, and Jada Johnson, 21, were arrested Monday morning.

Officers responded to a loud noise complaint at 455 Union St. around 5:25 a.m. and said Mateo answered the door, Manchester police said.

Police said they saw the 49-year-old victim in distress inside and she told police that Mateo, Crawford and Johnson kept her inside and occasionally assaulted her.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment and has since been released.

Police said the suspects may face additional charges pending the outcome of the investigation.

It’s not clear when they will appear in court or if they have attorneys.
