A Bedford man is facing kidnapping charges in connection with an incident that began in Concord and ended in Connecticut early February, authorities say. 

The state Department of Justice told 22News 24-year-old Julian Field was arrested in Key West, Florida, on a federal warrant late Wednesday night. Field was charged with one count of kidnapping and is scheduled to appear in federal court in Florida Friday. 

Field will be returned to Massachusetts at a later date. 

Court documents allege that on the evening of Feb. 3, Field broke into the home of a Concord resident, showed a knife asked the resident, “Do you enjoy pain?” 

After breaking into the unidentified resident’s home, Fields is said to have forced the man to drive him to a train station in Connecticut, but first stopping at the Mardi Gras Adult Club in Springfield to buy fentanyl. At the adult club, Fields allegedly ordered the man to enter the club with him. 

After leaving the club, Field instructed the Concord man to take him to a train station in Hartford, CT. A complaint filed in court says Field had the man buy him a train ticket and instead of waiting for the train there, Field had the man drive him to another train station in New Haven. 

Field eventually freed the Concord man, who called police and alerted them of the events that had happened. 

Authorities tracked Field to Florida, where he was arrested.

Field could spend up to life in prison, serve up to five years of supervised release and pay a fine of $250,000 if convicted.
