At about 11:15 p.m. on Sunday … police tried to pull over a man driving a vehicle without a taillight. … The driver took off and officers in two cruisers chased him for about 10 minutes until they blocked him. He stopped, backing into one of the cruisers, Mr. Walsh said.
Officers discovered an injured woman in the vehicle, and she told the police she had been held captive by the man, identified as Stewart Weldon, 40, for about a month, Mr. Walsh said.
According to a partly redacted police report, she told the police that Mr. Weldon had been “holding her captive,” raped her and beat her with a hammer and other objects over the past month. She was taken to the hospital with stab wounds to the abdomen, a possible fractured jaw and other injuries, the report said.
Soon after the arrest, investigators received additional information that led them on Wednesday to start to search the house on Page Boulevard, where they believed Mr. Weldon lived.
There, they found two bodies “in and around” the residence, Mr. Gulluni announced on Thursday. A third was discovered later, he said.
