MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis KFC employee saved the day after calling the police when a woman left a note begging for help.
According to court records obtained by WHBQ-TV, Diego Glay, 23, was charged with evading arrest and kidnapping after allegedly holding a woman against her will.
The Memphis Police Department responded to a kidnapping call on Sunday afternoon in southeast Memphis.
A KFC employee told police that a woman had left a note begging for help and gave a description of the woman and the man with her, the affidavit said.
Officers were able to locate Diego Glay and the woman who matched the description given by the KFC employee.
Glay refused to obey officers’ commands and took off running. He was later arrested after a short foot chase.
The victim said that Glay held her against her will with physical assaults, threats and being armed with a handgun, records show. The victim also said she and Glay had been in a relationship.
