Matthew Bright, 27, appeared in court Wednesday morning on charges of attempted murder, kidnapping and sex assault.

According to court documents, on Sunday, July 20, Bright hid in the backseat of the car his ex-wife and her boyfriend were in at Waterfront Plaza.

As they left the parking garage, Bright stabbed the man multiple times and, when the man jumped out to get help, Bright drove off with his ex-wife still in the vehicle.

Documents say Bright allegedly held his ex-wife against her will for several hours until police tracked them down at the top of Wilhelmina Rise and arrested him.

Bright’s bail is set at $500,000.
