Chico Police say a man described as “violent” and with a “significant criminal history” has been arrested on charges of kidnapping and false imprisonment. Police say a 42 year old woman went to the home of 54 year old James Warde last week to ask him not to harm her daughter. Police say Warde allegedly choked the victim, smothered her with a pillow, held her at knife point, and threatened her. Police say at one point the woman tried to run away, but the suspect allegedly caught her and carried her back. She was able to get away after the two went to a nearby store. Police arrested Warde this week.
