BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) - A Cape Cod man has pleaded not guilty to charges he kidnapped a woman as she was headed to her wedding in an attempt to get her fiance to meet with him.

The Cape Cod Times (https://bit.ly/1Kc4BbB ) reports that 27-year-old Anthony Russ, of Hyannis, pleaded not guilty Thursday.

Police say 19-year-old David Colon’s fiancee was headed to her wedding in her wedding dress in April Russ approached her car.

Police say Russ got in her car, threatened her with a knife and demanded that she get Colon. He allegedly punched her after she refused.

Police say he released her when neighbors intervened. Colon was killed last month in an unrelated case.

Russ remains jailed on $10,000 bail.
