GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Feb. 26, 2014) — A man was taken into custody early Wednesday morning, after police say he assaulted and abducted a woman with whom he had a relationship.

The original call came in at around 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday for a domestic assault near Ball and Knapp in the city’s northeast side.  Police say after the initial assault, the suspect threw his girlfriend in a car and drove off with her.

About an hour later, officers managed to catch up with him at the Lazy T Motel on Plainfield Avenue.  The suspect was arrested, and the victim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
