TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A man has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint in Tulsa and leading police on a pursuit.

According to Tulsa police, 24-year-old Marlon Alberty is in the Tulsa County Jail on 13 complaints after he pointed a shotgun at his former girlfriend Sunday night and forced her into his vehicle following a disturbance at a residence.
