HURON, S.D. (AP) - Huron police say a 55-year-old man is accused of kidnapping a woman and hitting her several times with a baseball bat while driving around the east side of town.

Police say the victim called police about 10:20 a.m. Tuesday and said she was in a car with a man who was threatening her with the bat. The woman stayed on the line with dispatchers and gave updates on her location.

The woman told authorities that the suspect threw the bat out the window of the vehicle when he spotted police. The bat was recovered by police.

The man is facing charges of aggravated assault and kidnapping.
