Kidnaping, larceny, criminal violation of a restraining order, strangulation, assault, threatening, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct — these are the charges that Rodolfo Revello will face once he is detained by law enforcement.

The Trumbull Police Department announced Monday, March 14, that it has obtained an arrest warrant for Revello, who kidnapped his seven-year-old son, Ariel, from his estranged wife's Unity Road home around 4:30 a.m. Saturday, March 12.

Trumbull Lt. Leonard Scinto said that multiple law enforcement agencies are currently still attempting to locate Revello, who has a listed address in Greenwich and is currently on federal probation related to drug charges.

The 43-year-old father forcefully entered the residence and assaulted the child's mother in her bedroom before going into the kitchen to grab a knife.

According to a report, Revello's attempt for more violence was thwarted by his 17-year-old stepson who intervened and gave the mother enough to escape the residence.

Scinto said that the victim had a restraining order against Revello that is active until September. He has visitation rights with his son but police have been called to the residence in the past for incidents.

Scinto added that Revello took several thousands of dollars of cash and jewelry from the victim’s room before waking out with Ariel and fleeing the residence in a 2015 White Ford transit cargo van with the license plate C040379.

An Amber Alert warning was issued around 9 a.m. Saturday and the child wasn't found until shortly after 5 p.m. that day.

Scinto said Saturday night that said Revello dropped his son at a relatives home in Queens, N.Y. The Amber Alert was cancelled around 6:30 p.m.

According to reports, Revello was a cocaine supplier in Stamford.

Court documents revealed that he was arrested in 2011 for buying 50 grams of cocaine for $1,700.

He was sentenced to 60 months in prison in 2012 and was released on Sept. 16, 2014.

In addition, his criminal history includes convictions for assault, disorderly conduct, violation of conditions of release, and two DUIs.
Police are still looking for the van and ask anyone with any information to contact Trumbull Police at 203-261-3665.
