A 42-year-old man is in jail Friday night on kidnapping charges.
Just before 4 p.m. today, Battle Creek Police responded to a call from a woman who said her boyfriend held her against her will, with a handgun.
This happened at the man’s residence, at a hotel in the 4700 block of Beckley Road.
The adult woman was able to escape after four hours and contact the police.
When police contacted the man, he would not come out of the hotel. After about 45 minutes, he did come out, and police arrested him without further incident.
The man is now in the Calhoun County Jail.
