BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek Police have arrested a man who assaulted and kidnapped a female acquaintance at a home at Upton and Washington while her child looked on in horror early Friday afternoon.
When he learned police were on their way, he forced the woman and the child into his car and drove off.
She convinced him to let them go for his own sake.
As soon as he did she called 9-1-1 and he was arrested soon after.
The 22-year-old suspect is being held in the Calhoun County Jail pending formal arraignment.
