(Source: www.washingtonpost.com) HARTFORD, Conn. — A Canadian man accused of abducting his toddler son 31 years ago during a court-ordered visitation was arrested Friday in Connecticut, where authorities said he and his son had lived under aliases in a quiet suburb.
U.S. federal agents said they found Allan Mann Jr. in Vernon after having received a tip from a relative that he may be living in Connecticut under another name.
It was not immediately clear where Mann’s now-adult son, Jermaine, was when Mann was arrested. Officials said they notified Jermaine Mann’s mother that her son had been identified and located.
