A woman reported that her ex-boyfriend kidnapped her at gunpoint about midnight Saturday night. He approached her in a parking lot, she said, and ordered her into a vehicle. He then drove her to a truck stop on Interstate 10 and searched through her phone. The man then drove her to the area of Rollingbrook Drive and Decker Drive where he forced her out of the vehicle after punching her in the face.

Evading

• Police trying to stop a maroon Chevrolet passenger car with an unreadable license plate on Ellis School Road near Harrison Street were led on a pursuit through the McNair area for several miles about 11 p.m. Saturday. The driver finally stopped and abandoned the car on Wade Road near Broad Street. Police did not locate the driver, but found a bag containing crack cocaine in the car.

• A loss prevention officer at Best Buy reported to police about 11:30 a.m. Sunday that a man later identified as 21-year-old Matthey Haynes stole more than $100 worth of merchandise, then he and an associate left the store in a red Chevrolet Cruz, according to Baytown police spokesman Jason Kelly.

Police located the vehicle a short time later parked outside Ross Dress for Less. The driver, identified as 26-year-old Rigoberto Barrientos, was found to be in possession of synthetic marijuana.

Haynes and his associate were found inside the store, Kelly said. As Haynes was being escorted out, he pulled away from officers and attempted to flee, but was soon restrained.

Haynes was charged with theft and resisting arrest and Barrientos was charged with possession of synthetic marijuana, Kelly said.
