EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — The Evansville Police Department says it’s working on making an arrest after an alleged violent kidnapping took place on the city’s eastside.
Friday night, police responded to a home on East Indiana Street for a domestic violence in progress call.
EPD officers say a man showed up at the victim’s home and forced the victim into his car against her will. The victim, police say, had a protective ordered filed against the suspect.
Police allege the man dragged the victim inside his home and assaulted her. According to a police report, the victim tried to call 911, but the man took her phone away so she wouldn’t be able to.
