Man Wanted for Kidnapping, Assault Arrested in Wisconsin
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ A St. Paul man wanted for kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman after breaking into her St. Louis Park home has been arrested following a police chase that ended in Wisconsin.
Law enforcement officers arrested 51-year-old Jeffrey Groves on Wednesday after he led them on a chase that began in Newport and ended about 18 miles away in Hudson, Wisconsin, when he crashed his vehicle.
Reports say prosecutors say Groves tied up the woman, put a pillowcase over her head, assaulted her and held her captive for hours Nov. 3. A criminal complaint says he drove the woman to two ATMs and forced her to withdraw money before returning her to her home.
The woman told police she recognized Groves as a former handyman. It's not clear whether Groves has hired an attorney.
