A wanted man who was found hiding in a South Toledo residence Thursday night was arraigned today in Toledo Municipal Court.
Larry Franco, Jr., 21, of 914 Willow Ave., is charged with domestic violence, aggravated robbery, intimidation, and two counts of abduction. He was ordered to be held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $210,000 bond; he is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing on April 12.
The suspect is accused of, on March 20, locking the mother of his 2-year-old daughter in an East Toledo bedroom and repeatedly punching her in the face. He forbade her from leaving and warned he would kill her, their daughter, and himself, according to documents filed in municipal court. This week, the woman reported that the suspect attacked her again, holding her at knife point and forcing her into a vehicle.
Police have described the suspect as extremely violent and said they feared for the victim's safety.
