Littleton police arrest kidnapping suspect


Littleton Police Department arrested a Denver man early on May 9 on suspicion of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and her son.

Justice Andrew Espinoza, 32, is accused of second-degree kidnapping, domestic violence and violation of a protection order.

Espinoza was arrested after Littleton police received a call at 2:44 a.m. on May 9 from the Bradley Sinclair gas station at 7500 S. Broadway. A woman had entered the store and told the clerk that she and her son were being kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend.

Arriving officers used their vehicles to block the suspect's vehicle from leaving, and he was taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit. The woman and her son were taken to Littleton Adventist Hospital as a precautionary measure.

Espinoza will face charges at the Arapahoe County Justice Center on May 15.
