The Paris Police Department were made aware of a kidnapping at 12:17 Saturday morning, when officers were advised that the victim was abducted by force from her place of employment by an ex-boyfriend.

“The boyfriend was evidently hiding behind the truck when the victim approached,” Police Chief Bob Hundley said. “After gaining control of the victim and her vehicle, the suspect drove from the scene.”

The victim tried to escape as they drove through the parking lot of McDonald’s but was unable to, authorities said.

When the suspect drove behind the Walmart store, she was then successful in getting out of the vehicle. Once she got out, the suspect collided with a dumpster before fleeing the area.

Officers have a named suspect and are looking for a red 2003 Ford F-10, 4-door pickup with vent visors on all windows. No tag information is available at the time of this report.

In other business, officers received a call of a stabbing in the 500 block of E. Tudor at 2:50 a.m. Saturday morning. Officers found that Markesha Hooker, a 22-year old female, had walked into a disturbance and suffered small lacerations to her left chest area.

“She was taken to the hospital by private vehicles,” Chief Hundley said. “She advised officers that she does not know the suspect.”
