Man held on possible kidnapping charges

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A Sioux Falls man is accused of kidnapping a woman and driving around with her in his pickup truck for several hours.

Police say the 33-year-old Humboldt woman wasn’t physically harmed and eventually convinced the man to let her go. Authorities say the 23-year-old man struck up a conversation with the woman who was sitting in her car eating lunch in a parking lot Tuesday afternoon. The man asked the woman to sit in his pickup and when she did he locked the doors and drove away.

The woman was able to give police a description of the man who is being held without bond in the Minnehaha County Jail.
