Police: Trumbull dad nabbed after taking kids

TRUMBULL – Two young children were safe and sound Friday after a day-long manhunt when police said their father took off with them after the mother was granted full custody of the children.

Craig Chormanski, 43, of Pequonnock Road, surrendered to police, turning over his two children, aged 9 and 11.

He was charged with two counts of second-degree custodial interference. Meanwhile, police said the two children were turned over to their mother in Shelton.

Police said on Wednesday the mother was granted full custody of the two children. However, when a state marshal went to serve the order on Chormanski at his parents’ home his mother said Chormanski had taken the children and left. She said she didn’t know where they had gone, police said.
