Authorities say a North Port man kidnapped and threatened a woman he met on the dating website Plenty of Fish.
Charlotte County deputies arrested 23-year old Christopher Pena on false imprisonment, grand theft, battery and other charges yesterday morning. It was just hours after deputies say Pena arrived at the victim’s Punta Gorda apartment uninvited. She let him in, though. The woman tells deputies he took her cellphone and retreated to his vehicle, where he demanded to read messages on the phone. Pena drove away from the woman’s home with her still inside the vehicle, refusing to let her get out. Pena eventually dropped the victim back off at her home, at which time she alerted authorities. He’s now being held without bond.
