Wallingford man charged with holding girlfriend captive

-->

WALLINGFORD — A local man charged with tying his girlfriend to a chair and pointing a gun at her is being held on $10,000 bond, police said.

Daniel Kukish, 28, was arrested by Manchester Police on Dec. 30. The charges include weapon in a motor vehicle and disobeying an officer’s signal. Wallingford police have an arrest warrant charging Kukish with threatening, kidnapping, and second-degree assault. That warrant carries an additional $500,000 bond, police said.

On Dec. 29, a woman reported to police she had been held captive by her boyfriend at their Wallingford residence, said Sgt. Brian Nowek. The woman said the boyfriend, identified as Kukish, accused her of having an affair, tied her to a chair, pointed a gun at her and forced her to drink what he claimed was poison. When police searched the home they found firearms and a chair with duct tape on it, Nowek said.

After holding the woman for several hours, Kukish took her to a home in Manchester, saying he was going to find the man she was having an affair with. Kukish left the woman at the home and drove off. He was pulled over by Manchester police for erratic driving, Nowek said.

Kukish was arraigned and is being held at Hartford Correctional Facility, police said.
