Fighting inside a vehicle
A North Vernon man is being accused of kidnapping after two people were seen fighting inside a vehicle Sunday.
North Vernon police say that they were called to the dispute at about 12:45 p.m. Sunday afternoon, along with Jennings County deputies and Indiana conservation officers. A witness said that the vehicle was swerving as two men fought inside and almost struck a parked car.
Police found the vehicle at the Crystal Flash Gas Station and saw that the victim had been injured during the fight. Police say that 32-year-old Travis D. Woods allegedly was having an argument with the victim before driving off in the vehicle, while continuing to attack the victim, striking him in the face, and refusing to stop. The victim’s phone was also damaged during the incident.
Woods is facing charges of kidnapping resulting in injury, criminal confinement resulting in injury, battery resulting in moderate bodily injury and interfering with reporting a crime.
