( – Oscar Hernandez-Carranza, a previously deported illegal alien and convicted felon, abducted his six-year-old daughter, fatally stabbed her mother, and stabbed another woman in Bridgeport, Connecticut early Friday morning, February 24.

The 39-year-old citizen of El Salvador allegedly murdered 26 year-old Nidia Gonzalez, the mother of his child, and repeatedly stabbed another woman, believed to be her friend. She is in critical but stable condition at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Bridgeport.

“This is horrible,” Bridgeport Police Chief Armando Perez said. “The scene there, it’s horrendous.”

Hernandez fled the scene of the double stabbing with his daughter Aylin, triggering a multi-state Amber Alert. Pennsylvania State Police spotted and then pursued Hernandez after he refused to pull over on I-99, finally apprehending the suspect when he crashed into a tractor-trailer.

Aylin did not sustain major physical injuries, and authorities will return her to relatives in Connecticut, according to Bridgeport Police Capt. Brian Fitzgerald.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deported Hernandez in November 2013.

He has prior felony convictions for assault and threatening, as well as multiple misdemeanor convictions, ICE Spokesman Shawn Neudauer said. ICE will take custody of the suspect when the Bridgeport Police Department turn him over.
