Police Say City Men Kidnapped Teen and Glued His Lips Shut

MANCHESTER — Two city men are accused of kidnapping a teenager and engaging in a series of tortuous acts against him, including burning him with a hot knife and gluing his lips together.

Ismael Bangs, 19, was arraigned Friday in Manchester District Court on charges of felony kidnapping, criminal threatening, and first- and second-degree assault. He pleaded not guilty. Yvens Luclaise, 25, was accused of being criminally liable for the charges for assisting in holding the 15-year-old victim and videotaping the alleged crimes with a mobile device. He also pleaded not guilty.

The two men, both of Manchester, were ordered held on $100,000 bail, an unusually high amount that was requested by the prosecutor.

“In the one and a half years I've been doing this, this is the most disturbing set of facts I've seen,” police prosecutor Det. Steven Mangone told the judge.

Police responded to a call shortly after midnight Thursday, early Friday morning, at the Kelley Falls public housing project on Kimball Street on the West Side.

After setting up a perimeter around the building, officers caught and arrested the suspects as they attempted to leave out the back door.

With the assistance of a police dog, the officers found the alleged victim naked under a bed in the apartment.

According to the police report, the victim was shaking and “attempting to scream but his mouth wouldn't open.” Realizing his mouth had been glued shut, police had the teen transported to Catholic Medical Center, where he was treated for several injuries.

Later in the evening, officers were able to interview the alleged victim at the hospital. His name has not been released because he is a minor, police said.

The teenager told police that he was acquainted with Bangs and that the 19-year-old wanted to speak to him at his apartment. After “hanging out,” the teen said he was told to stay sit down in the living room. Luclaise, Bangs' alleged accomplice, then locked the door and began shooting video with “an iPod.”

Bangs brought a butcher knife, cork screw, wrench and other items into the room, according to the police report. Holding the butcher knife, Bangs allegedly ordered the teen to take off his clothes and lie down. Bangs allegedly burned a rubber glove over the teen, letting it drip onto him and burning his abdomen, according to police.

Police would find a butcher, knife, cork screw, burned glove and other items mentioned in the teen's account in the apartment. It's not clear if police were able to recover the recording device.

Bangs accused the teen of being “a snitch,” according to the police report.

After dripping the burning rubber on the teen, Ismael then allegedly held a lighter close to the teen's lips and told him not to blow it out or he would cut him. He also stuck paper up the teen's nostrils and lit it, again telling him not to blow it out. The teen suffered burns on his lips, according to the report.

Ismael then allegedly applied a large amount of glue to the teen's lips, gluing them together. He also used a lighter to heat up the blade of a knife and applied it to the victim's shoulder “numerous times,” causing several burn injuries.

After growing concerned that the teenager had not come out of the apartment for some time, the grandmother of the alleged victim knocked on the door of the apartment twice. On the second occasion, Ismael ordered the teen to get under the bed in Ismael's sister's room. He then invited the grandmother to look around, and the teen heard Ismael tell her, while lying on the bed, that he “wasn't there,” according to the teen's account in the police report.

The next thing the teenager knew, the report states, a police dog found him.

Police also interviewed a friend of the teen who said she had also knocked on the door and saw the alleged attack taking place. She told police that she saw Ismael put the lighter to the teen's lips, hold the knife up to his head and tell the alleged victim something to the effect of, “You run your mouth too much,” according to the police report.

So far, Manchester police say they have not been able to find any records of a criminal case in which the alleged victim had cooperated with police.

Ismael has several prior charges for disorderly conduct and trespassing, and he has an outstanding warrant for failing to report for a hearing.

At the arraignment, Ismael held his head down and spoke in a barely audible voice, giving terse responses to the judge's questions.

After the judge issued his bail order, three people left the courtroom, including a young woman who was in tears. They said they knew the victim but did not want to identify themselves.

“We don't have anything to say,” said a young man.
