WFPD Looking For Suspect In Aggravated Kidnapping

Wichita Falls Police are looking for a man accused of pulling a gun on another man and forcing him to drive to two locations.

Here's what police say happened: a man was at a Convenience Store on Southwest Parkway and was approached by another, described as a black man, about 5'5" to 5'7" and about 130 to 150 pounds. That man asked the victim to help jump his car, saying it was on Professional Drive.

Once in the car, en route to Professional Drive, the suspect pulled a gun on the victim and forced him to drive to the Budget Inn. The victim tells police there was a man standing outside the motel. The suspect made an exchange with that man, then forced the driver to drive back to Professional Drive.

The suspect was wearing a long-sleeve black, thermal shirt with gray writing.
