Port Chester man accused of beating Conn. girl, holding her captive
A village man who held a Connecticut runaway captive for 14 months, physically abused her and having a child with her, is due in Village Court today, police said.
The 18-year-old New London girl left home July 2, 2006, with Charles Carrieri, 27, whom she met on the Internet, Lt. James Ladeairous said.
Although reported missing by her mother, no one knew she was in the village. Carrieri did not let her out of the 75 Purdy Ave. home, nor did she have access to a phone, Ladeairous said.
In December 2006, he began physically abusing her, police said. She is now unable to open her left eye, Ladeairous said, because she has a seriously damaged eye socket from repeated pummeling. So obvious was the damage that police brought her immediately to Greenwich Hospital when she walked into police headquarters Tuesday morning with her mother........
