TRUMBULL, CT- Police searched nearly all day Saturday for a 7-year-old child who was the subject of an Amber Alert after his father, who has a violent criminal history, forcibly took him from his home, according to police. The alert was cancelled around 6:40 p.m. after the child was found safe, however police continue to search for the boy's father.

At a press conference on Saturday, Trumbull Police Chief Michael Lombardo said the department would be devoting all of its resources to safely return Ariel Revello, 7, after his father Rodolfo Revello, 43, violently took the child from his Unity Road home.

According to police, the boy was located in Queens, N.Y. shortly after 5 p.m. when his father called Trumbull Police and said he was leaving the child with a relative. Officers in New York responded to the address and located the boy safe and unharmed.

The investigation remains active and police are seeking to obtain a warrant for the arrest of the father, Rodolfo Revello on multiple charges.

Police extended the search into New York because Rodolfo has a listed residence in Greenwich. New York State Police, Connecticut State Police and the New York Police Department are assisting in the investigation.

Lombardo said there was a possibility the child and his father are in New York but said authorities were not certain about what city or burrough the two could be in.

Police responded to the home on Unity Road around 4:30 a.m. for the report of a domestic incident.

The child’s mother and estranged wife of Revello sustained cuts, bruises and abrasions during the violent incident. Revello obtained a knife from the kitchen, but he was disarmed by his 17-year-old stepson.

The victim jumped out of a bedroom window and hid in the yard. She was taken to a local hospital and has since been released, Lombardo said. No other injuries were reported.

Revello took several thousand dollars worth of cash and jewelry before he left the residence in a 2015 white Ford van with Connecticut registration CO40379.

The victim had a restraining order against Revello that is active until September, said Lt. Leonard Scinto, police spokesman. He has visitation rights with his son. Police have been called to the residence in the past for incidents.

Rodolfo’s criminal history includes convictions for assault, disorderly conduct, violation of conditions of release and two DUIs. He was also convicted in federal court of distributing cocaine.

According to court documents and statements made in federal court, Revello supplied cocaine to members of the Stamford Chapter of the Latin Kings, who then sold the drugs to their own customers.

He was arrested in 2011. He was sentenced to five years of prison in 2012 followed by four years of supervised release.

Federal records show he was released on September 16, 2014.

Police ask anyone with any information to either contact Trumbull Police at 203-261-3665 or 911.
