Man accused of assaulting girlfriend in parking lot


A man is in jail accused of kidnapping and robbing his girlfriend in the parking lot of a McDonald's.

Police say a man forced his girlfriend inside a car and drove from a bar to the McDonald's on Lebanon Pike and Jacksonian Drive in Hermitage.

Once there, he allegedly pulled her outside, put her in handcuffs and slammed her into the ground. Police say he then took the handcuffs off of her, grabbed her purse and fled.

Witnesses say he also choked the woman.

Police say the couple was dancing with a group of strangers earlier in the night and he got jealous.

The man was on the run for two days before being arrested Tuesday evening.

According to the arrest warrant, the victim refused medical attention and said she did not want to file an order of protection.
