Woman flees from kidnapper

MOULTRIE — A woman reported a former boyfriend forced her into the back of her car, took her out while he bought drugs, and then she jumped out when the car slowed.

Sandra Pfuntner, 39, told Moultrie police that at about 9:30 p.m. Monday she saw the man while dropping off co-workers in the 200 block of Eighth Street Southeast. When he asked to talk to her she allowed him to put his bicycle in the trunk of her car and drove to a parking lot in the 900 block of First Avenue Southeast.

There, she reported he began using vulgar language and took her keys, cell phone and money before ordering her into the back seat under the threat of a beating. He then drove to the Forest Hill area and bought some drugs, taking her out so she could not leave.

Back in the car, the man had Pfuntner get in the front seat and he pushed and hit her while driving. At the intersection of Fifth Avenue Southwest and West Boulevard she got out and ran to a residence in the 1400 block of Fifth Avenue, police reports said.

Her assailant followed her, so Pfuntner got between the screen door and front door as he tried to pull it open. During the struggle, Pfuntner told police, he pulled her shirt and apron off before finally leaving.

The resident let her in and called for help, police said.

In another reported assault:

• Johnny Lee Kennedy, 200 block 15th Street Southeast, reported Monday that a male acquaintance hit Ashley Johnson in the left side of the face.

Kennedy and Johnson told police that a male acquaintance who was at their residence did not want to leave when they were ready to go to bed, and when Johnson playfully threatened to pour water on him he punched her.

The man was not there when police arrived. Johnson had swelling and redness to her face.

Police took a warrant for the man’s arrest on a charge of battery.

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
