BRIDGEPORT —  The suspect in a deadly Bridgeport stabbing and subsequent kidnapping will be returning to Connecticut to face charges.

39-year-old Oscar Hernandez was arrested back in February after crashing into a tractor-trailer in Pennsylvania. Police were chasing him under an Amber Alert.

Hernandez is accused of stabbing Nadia Gonzalez in Bridgeport, before fleeing the state with their 6-year-old daughter, Aylin Sophia Hernandez. Aylin was rescued from the car, suffering only minor injuries.

Hernandez was previously being held in a Pennsylvania prison.

This is not Hernandez’s first brush with the law. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said that Hernandez was deported in 2013 to El Salvador and another woman had a restraining order against him in a previous assault case.

Hernandez will be appear in a Bridgeport court on Monday, April 10.

Amber Alerts are issued for children who are believed to be in danger. Silver Alerts are issued by law enforcement agencies for missing people of all ages.
