Yakima woman found bound and gagged in car

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Police say a 20-year-old Yakima woman was found bound and gagged in the trunk of a car near the Yakima airport after being kidnapped from her home Thursday.

Police say the woman was taken from her home by her mother's ex-boyfriend.

The Yakima Herald-Republic reported Friday the 44-year-old Sunnyside man is jailed pending possible charges of burglary and kidnapping.

Police say he broke into the woman's house, bound and gagged her, and locked her in the trunk of his car. Then he used the daughter's cell phone to send texts to her mother in Benton City asking her to come to Yakima to talk.
