READING, Pa. - A Reading man is free on bail after allegedly kidnapping his ex-girlfriend at the Reading High School homecoming football game Friday night.

Moises Compres-Minier, 19, faces several charges, including kidnapping, unlawful restraint, simple assault, terroristic threats and harassment.

The girl. according to police, went to get food from the concession stand at halftime when Compres-Minier confronted her.

Compres-Minier, indicating he had a gun, said she needed to leave with him or he would kill her and her new boyfriend, according to court paperwork released Monday. The victim then walked with him to his vehicle in the 1800 block of Birch Street, police said.

The girl then tried to run away, but Compres-Minier threatened her and her boyfriend, grabbed her and threw her into his car, according to court paperwork.

Police said Compres-Minier drove to the Pagoda atop Mount Penn, walked to his trunk and got a pistol. He loaded it and asked her to kill him because he was suffering over their past relationship, according to court paperwork.

Compres-Minier used the victim's phone to record a video of himself telling her to kill him. When she tried to get the phone back, he threw it away. He then placed the gun back in the trunk, according to police.

As Compres-Minier was putting the gun back into the trunk, the victim began yelling and honking the horn, police said. Compres-Minier grabbed her and threw her onto the ground in front of the car, according to police. While on the ground, she found her cell phone and saw her boyfriend was calling. She answered it and told him to send help. Compres-Minier then picked her up and started arguing with her again. She began honking the horn again, which is when he pulled her by the hair, slapped her several times in the face and bit her on the shoulder, according to court paperwork.

Police said she begged Compres-Minier to take her home and he agreed, if she did not tell anyone what happened. He dropped her off and she ran to her house, where she waited for police to arrive.
