DE City man charged in kidnapping at Milford motel
A Delaware City man is behind bars, charged with kidnapping his estranged girlfriend and her 2 young children.
State Police say relatives who live nest door to the victim on Atlanta Road in Seaford called 9-1-1 around 11 Friday morning after they hadn't seen her all morning.
When troopers arrived, they found signs of a struggle, and saw that the victim and her 2 girls were missing, but her cell phone and wallet were still in the house.
Tips from the victim's friends led the cops to the Travelers Inn Motel in Milford, where the victim's boyfriend, Clifford David Junior, was said to be staying.
Police found David, the victim and her children in a room at the motel, and David, who police say assaulted the victim before kidnapping her, was arrested.
He's being held at the Sussex Correctional Institute.
