State Police are seeking a murder suspect from Connecticut who was last seen in East Stroudsburg.

State police at Troop N shared a tweet from Connecticut State Police who are searching for 23-year-old Peter Manfredonia, the University of Connecticut senior suspected in the killings of a 62-year-old man in Willington, Connecticut, on Friday, a 23-year-old man in Derby, Connecticut, Sunday morning, and the abduction of a woman from the Derby crime scene, according to the Hartford Courant.

Police said Manfredonia, who was last seen in the area of East Stroudsburg, shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday, may be armed with pistols and shotguns they say he stole during a home invasion in Willington.

After fleeing the homicide scene in Derby, police said Manfredonia abducted the dead man’s girlfriend and stole a 2016 black Volkswagen Jetta from their home.

Police found the Jetta and the girlfriend Sunday afternoon in New Jersey near the Pennsylvania border. She was safe and police are questioning her. She was not identified.

Manfredonia is a white man described as 6 feet 3 inches tall, and 240 pounds. Police said he should be considered armed and dangerous.
