Man kidnaps girlfriend, caught by authorities


Authorities have arrested a man accused of kidnapping his girlfriend early Sunday morning. The incident occurred at a home in the 4500 block of Wood Ave. at around 5 a.m.

Police say the suspect's girlfriend was staying with a friend, when the suspect is accused of entering the residence without permission. He then began arguing with the victim, and a witness at the scene tried to intervene.

The female victim was forced into a car and the suspect drove away.

A witness called police fearing for her friend's safety, and authorities were able to respond to a location in 2700 block of Old Mexia Road where they found the suspect and victim. Law enforcement officials were able to free the victim and took Joseph Doyle Ivey into custody.
