FERGUS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — A woman abducted at gunpoint from her rural Fergus Falls home has been found and a suspect has been arrested.
The mother of the woman abducted Sunday afternoon tells KFGO a masked man armed with a gun entered her daughter’s home through an unlocked basement door. She says the intruder forced her daughter to leave with him in his pickup truck. One of the woman’s four children called their father, who called 911.
The children were able to provide authorities with information that helped them spot the pickup on Highway 59 in northern Otter Tail County about four hours later. A brief pursuit ended in a field near Erhard where the suspect, a registered sex offender with a history of kidnapping, was taken into custody.
