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. Officers say they later spotted the suspect’s vehicle on the L.L. Tisdale Expressway and tried to stop him. The suspect led police on an 18-minute chase before he was taken into custody.

Detectives said the woman was "visibly upset" and had visible injuries, but was not taken to a hospital for treatment.

The suspect is being held on several charges including eluding, kidnapping and domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor.
