Accused kidnapper appears in court

NORWALK - A Stamford man accused of kidnapping a woman at Norwalk Community College appeared in court Thursday.

Alexander Wendorf, 27, is charged with kidnapping, unlawful restraint and impersonating a police officer.

Police say he lured the woman into his car Tuesday night by first asking for directions and then pretending he needed help giving himself an insulin shot because he claimed he was diabetic.

The victim then told police Wendorf took off with her in the car.

The woman got away when she was able to jump from the moving vehicle.

Wendorf is being held on $500,000 bond.
