Boyle County authorities say a man who is accused to have kidnapped and assaulted a woman is now in police custody.
Sheriff Derek Robbins says Kyle E. Smith, 23, of Danville surrendered in LaGrange, Georgia Wednesday. Authorities found the van Smith was driving burned in the woods, and a witness spotted him leaving the vehicle.
Smith is accused of kidnapping a Perryville woman on the Danville Bypass just before 7 a.m. Tuesday. Robbins says it happened after the woman dropped her kids off at day care when Smith assaulted her and dragged her into a van. The victim was able to escape the van while it was moving. She was transported to a local hospital for treatment of injuries.
Authorities say this is not the first time Smith has threatened the victim.
There are EPO and DPo paperwork between them. Robbins says Smith will likely be brought back to Boyle County next week to face charges.
