A man from Willard, North Carolina, is suspected of abducting a woman and her 8-month-old child and keeping them captive for over a month while allegedly forcing the woman to perform sexual acts.
The Pender County 911 emergency services received a call on the morning of August 9 from the alleged victim of a kidnapping. The woman on the line reported that she and her baby had been taken by a man on Independence Day, and he had been keeping them captive since then.
The caller also said that her alleged kidnapper used a taser on her before sexually assaulting her. The woman reported that the alleged non-consensual acts took place on more than one occasion and that the man would sometimes point a gun at her while demanding sex.
