7Yr Old Girl Kidnapped, Choked And Tossed Off Bridge

WORCESTER — A 7-year-old girl was dozing on a chair at a late-summer cookout at her grandparents’ house this weekend when a 35-year-old man kidnapped her, choked her, and heaved her off a bridge into a lake, authorities said.

She swam for her life and survived. Now her alleged attacker, Joshua Hubert, faces charges. His motives are still unclear.

“She was put in a car, strangled, and thrown off a bridge into Lake Quinsigamond,” Worcester police said Monday in a statement. “She survived the drop and swam to shore, where she was eventually discovered with visible, but not life-threatening injuries.”
She was found 90 minutes later in Shrewsbury.

Meanwhile Hubert, a Worcester resident described as a family friend, was arrested on a kidnapping charge. “The investigation continues,” Worcester police said.

Hubert was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing slated for Thursday, according to District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.’s office. His lawyer for the arraignment could not be reached for comment. A not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

“Fortunately, a greater tragedy was averted,” Early said in a separate statement. “The young victim had the strength to make it to shore and get help. I want to thank the resident who answered the door and helped the girl. I also want to acknowledge the Worcester and Shrewsbury police and the State Police Detectives assigned to my office. They did a terrific job working together in investigating this.

Authorities did not identify the girl or the person who discovered her in Shrewsbury, nor did they provide details on the specific location where she was found.
Monday’s arraignment was not Hubert’s first experience with the court system.

He clashed several years ago with Valerie Zawalich, the mother of his son, in an ugly custody dispute that led to Zawalich being fired as a police dispatcher after she took the child without permission even though Hubert had custody, according to the Telegram.

“I’m thrilled,” Hubert told the newspaper in 2009 after he was reunited with the boy. “But I’m not thrilled that my son is in the middle of this. She uses him like a pawn.”

Zawalich could not immediately be reached for comment. A call to a number listed for Hubert’s address on Bernice Street in Worcester wasn’t immediately returned.

Prosecutors said Hubert “was reported to have been a guest at the cookout” before he allegedly took the girl. A motive for the horrific abduction and assault was not disclosed.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
