kidnap 9/1

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police said they had a suspect in custody on Tuesday night after a kidnapping investigation led to a car chase.

Police responded about 5:24 p.m. on September 1 to 3955 Algonquin Drive, near Flamingo Road and Maryland Parkway, for a possible kidnapping investigation. 

Police said the original call described the man breaking the window of a residence and battering a woman, then forcing her into a vehicle. 

Officers found the vehicle close by and pursued it when it drove off. The chase ended at I-15 and Blue Diamond.

The suspect and the victim were both taken to University Medical Center with minor injuries. 

Boxler said the southbound on-ramp from Blue Diamond is closed while detectives respond and conduct the investigation.
