ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man has been jailed on charges that he briefly kidnapped a woman who police say is a witness in a court case against him.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 21-year-old Jordan Knutson (kuh-NOOT’-son) of Altoona.

Police say the woman told them Knutson had threatened to kill several times in the last year due to a court case in which she’s involved against him.

Altoona police aren’t detailing the case, but say Knutson went to the woman’s home and banged on the windows about 1 a.m. Sunday. When she came outside, Knutson allegedly dragged her into a car driven by a teen accomplice.

Police say the woman was able to get away and call 911, but not before being dragged about a block by the car.
