Police say an arrest warrant has been issued for the ex-con wanted for allegedly abducting his young son in Trumbull over the weekend.
As News 12 has reported, the disappearance of 7-year-old Ariel Revello early Saturday morning prompted police to issue Amber alerts in Connecticut and New York. Police say the boy's father, 43-year-old Rodolfo Revello, broke into his estranged wife's home, assaulted her, stole money and jewelry, and then fled with their son.
Police say the boy was located safely about 14 hours later, after they say Revello dropped him off with a relative in Queens, New York, and called police to let them know. The boy was reunited with his mother, but Revello still hasn't been apprehended.
Stamford police say they were familiar with the man before the abduction incident. Capt. Richard Conklin says Revello was a defendant in a major drug case involving gang members in 2011.
"He was affiliated with the Latin Kings, and he was their source for cocaine," Conklin says, although he notes Revello wasn't a Latin King member himself at that time. "He would sell wholesale amounts of cocaine to them, which they would retail."
Court documents show Revello pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine and was sentenced to five years in prison. He was out on supervised release when Saturday's abduction was reported.
Police say Revello is wanted on several charges. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call police.
