BELLMAWR, N.J. (AP) - A Missouri man has been arrested in New Jersey for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting his estranged girlfriend.

The Camden County Prosecutor’s Office says Jose Amaya-Vasquez was arrested early Tuesday morning at the Super 8 Motel in Bellmawr.

Authorities say Amaya-Vasquez kidnapped the mother of his child at knifepoint in Kansas City, Missouri, on Saturday. He’s accused of sexually assaulting the victim at a vacant house in Missouri, a motel in Ohio and a motel in Bellmawr. Authorities say the couple’s 2-year-old daughter was with them. They believe Amaya-Vasquez was heading to New York City.

He faces kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault and other charges.

Authorities have notified U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement since Amaya-Vasquez is believed to be from Honduras and is living in the United States without proper documentation.
