The caller said she and her husband were following the kidnapper’s vehicle, in which the suspect held the victim and her child at knife-point and threatened to kill them. The victim was also on the phone with the caller, as she’d used a different phone to call 911 and relay information.
Dispatch relayed locations and direction of travel to officers, who conducted a stop near the intersection of Shasta and Caroline.

He was booked into the county jail on charges of kidnapping, criminal threats, assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment, and probation violation.
