Columbus Police Department are searching for a suspect in a Thursday night kidnapping.
Police responded to a call at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Golden Triangle shortly after 9 p.m. about a woman who had arrived with injuries she apparently got during an assault outside Kmart on Highway 45 North, according to a CPD press release.
The victim told investigators that at about 6 p.m., she and an ex-boyfriend got into an altercation in the Kmart parking lot when he forced her into a car and drove her around Columbus before later letting her go, the release said. A friend took the victim to the hospital where she was treated and released for various minor injuries.
Police did not release information on how long the victim was with the kidnapper.
