MIDDLETOWN — A woman called police Sunday morning from a hotel room and said she was being held against her will by a man.

Middletown Deputy Police Chief Paul Bailey said the woman from The Bronx told police she was in a room with Connor Post, 29, of Middletown, who threatened her when she tried to leave. She said Post had a knife.

Post left before police arrived but officers later caught up with him. He was charged with criminal restraint, terroristic threats, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Bailey did not disclose the relationship between Post and the woman.

Post was being held Monday at the Monmouth County Correctional Institution in Freehold Township.
