A south side woman is shaken up but unhurt after a harrowing eight hour kidnapping ordeal, and deputies say they have a bead on the kidnapper, 1200 WOAI news reports.
It all started Thursday afternoon when a man who sheriff's investigators say is 'known to the woman' knocked on her door and asked her for a ride.
When the woman turned down the man's request, investigators tell 1200 WOAI news he tied her up, forced her into a pickup truck, and took her to a home in Lacoste, in Medina County, where he held her for about eight hours.
She finally managed to escape and call authorities last night.
The kidnapper remains on the loose but detectives say since the victim knows the man he shouldn't be hard to locate.
No word on why the woman refused the man's request, or what their relationship is.
