Wichita Police arrested a 23-year-old man in a domestic violence abduction case.

At approximately 1:30 Saturday afternoon, a woman reported a domestic disturbance between a 30-year-old female neighbor and her 23-year-old boyfriend at an apartment in the 2500 block of south Oliver. 

The woman told a WPD officer that the man drove away with his girlfriend in a car, against her wishes.

A short time later, the suspect drove by and the female victim was motioning at officers for help.  They caught up to the vehicle in the 2000 block of south Old Manor where the suspect stopped the car and fled on foot.  He ran into an unoccupied home nearby and barricaded the door closed.

Officers in foot pursuit defeated the barricade and took the suspect into custody without further incident.  The man was arrested and booked into jail for kidnapping, criminal threats, felony obstruct, burglary, criminal damage to property, and domestic violence battery.  The victim sustained only minor injuries.
