HOLLAND, Mich. — Holland police have arrested a 57-year-old man in connection to an unlawful imprisonment incident.

Officers from the Holland Department of Public Safety responded about 3:50 p.m. Tuesday to a home on 17th Street near College Avenue on a report of an individual who had been stabbed, according to a news release Wednesday.

Arriving officers found the victim, a 52-year-old Holland woman, with a cut on her right arm.

The woman told police she had gone to the home on 17th Street where her son lives to care for his dog since her son was at work for the evening.

After tending to the dog, the woman was confronted by her son’s housemate, Kenneth Raymond-Herbert Osborne, who she says grabbed her and threatened her with a knife.

The woman initially struggled with Osborne, receiving the cut on her arm.

After that initial struggle ended, Osborne tied her up inside the house and told her he needed money, she told police.

Eventually, the victim was able to free herself and escape out of the home to a neighbor’s house and call 911.

Officers checked the area and found a person matching ROsborne's description a few blocks west of the residence.

He was taken into custody and police found a credit card belonging to the victim in his possession.

In addition, the victim found that her car was no longer parked by the house where she had left it.

Officers found it parked "a couple" blocks from the home and say their investigation showed that Osborne had driven it there.

He was arraigned in the 58th district court on charges of:

- unlawful imprisonment
- assault with a dangerous weapon
- financial transaction device - stealing/retaining without consent
- unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle
- habitual offender

His bond was set at $100,000 cash/surety.

The victim was transported to Holland Hospital, where she was treated for her injury and released.
