A Colusa man is behind bars for allegedly kidnapping a woman and her 3 year old son, and holding them hostage for ten days.
Police say the victim managed to escape with her child Thursday night, while 35-year-old Jermaine Roberts was sleeping.
Investigators say it started New Years Eve when the woman was parked outside a friend’s home with her son sleeping in the back seat.
Roberts allegedly forced her at knife point to drive to his home, and that the first time she tried to escape ... he caught her and severely beat her.
Police say Roberts fled but was taken into custody after he was found hiding in a nearby home.
He once dated the victim, but that relationship reportedly ended months ago.###
