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.

    I know this guy and he is nothing but a womanizer. He has no respect for woman not even his own wife. Who at this time is serving our county. How do you think her family feels. So there is not only one victim, but more than we know. So i agree that he has not gotten what he deserves and may never. It is sad that he would go and do some thing like this knowing that his wife just left last week. But some guys just don't care. This is why woman who are being abused need to step up and say something cause if no one does this is just a small insight on how thing can be worse.

    2nd degree kidnapping charges, thats all justice is not served. He should have got a lot more, and to think hes already out on bail so he can do it again. To think the next victim may not be so lucky. Once again a crimnal gets off easy and the good people get screwed

    That girl refused to be a victim and taught this criminal a lesson. Good for her! Let's hope he will actually go to trial. Plea bargains are all too frequent lately.
