thank you, bath salts!
Officers were called to a home in the 900 block of Sharon Avenue early Wednesday morning in reference to a woman being abducted. However, when they arrived they found a 36-year-old man half-clothed and holding a hatchet in the front yard and the woman underneath the floor of the home trying to claw her way out.
When asked why she was in the crawlspace, the woman said she chased another woman into the basement and the woman was able to elude her by climbing out a trapdoor in the closet.
The man outside the house told officers they needed to search the area because he had heard people on the roof and he thought they were going to abduct his girlfriend.
He also told officers while his girlfriend was under the floor, he thought someone was trying to rape her and he took a circular saw and attempted to cut her out of the floor. Failing to do that, he then took a hatchet and tried to punch holes in the floor.
