Suspects in Custody in Connection With Alleged Kidnapping

Massachusetts State Police have arrested one man and are still looking for two other suspects in connection with an alleged kidnapping on Thursday night.

State police said they were notified by Lawrence police around 11:20 p.m. that they were looking for a gray Dodge Caravan in connection with the alleged kidnapping of an adult man. Two of the suspects allegedly showed weapons.

The minivan was located a short time later on Granada Way in Andover but two suspects fled on foot. Authorities searched the area with a state police Air Wing and K-9 units but could not locate the suspects.

A short time later, state police troopers located and pursued a black Chrysler 300 on Route 110 in Lawrence that was believed to be related to the incident.

After a short pursuit, the vehicle stopped at about 12:22 a.m. and three suspects jumped out.

Procopio said Joel Aguilar, 37, of Lowell, was captured and will be charged by state police with assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. A firearm and a knife were found on his person. He faces additional charges out of Lawrence.

The two other suspects remain at large.
