Colorado Springs police have arrested a man who allegedly tried to kidnap a woman on the south side of town Tuesday morning. Authorities say they tracked his cell phone to catch him.
The victim said she exchanged numbers with a man she thought was an acquaintance at a 7-11 store near Rand and Lake Ave.
An hour later, she said, the man was tailing her car. She pulled into another 7-11 store, this time on the 1800 block of S. Nevada. That's where the man reportedly pulled up beside her car, grabbed her arm and forced her into his car.
The victim reportedly tried to get out of the front door, but was locked in by the suspect. The suspect drove from the area and when he rolled down her window, she jumped out of it while the car was moving.
She then ran to a nearby house on the 2000 block of Corona Ave. where she called police.
Officers were able to track the cell phone number that the suspect had exchanged with the victim earlier and both the car and the suspect were positively identified by the victim.
The suspect is identified as Luther Brumfield, 25. He now faces a charge of Second Degree Kidnapping.
