Kidnapping charges dropped against Middletown man

Posted

Kidnapping charges were dropped against a Middletown man who police say allegedly tried to abduct a woman in the Giant Foods parking lot on East Main Street on Aug. 30.

A charge of kidnapping for ransom and a charge of criminal attempted kidnapping to inflict injury or terror against Roberto Romero, 37, of the first block of Caravan Court, were withdrawn following a preliminary hearing before District Judge David Judy on Sept. 24, according to court records.

Judy ordered that Romero stand trial in Dauphin County Court on the charges of indecent assault, stalking and harassment.

Romero is to be arraigned in county court on Nov. 11.
