A Winnipeg man wanted in connection with a November kidnapping has been arrested by police.
Police said they spotted Jason Robert Baker, 28, around 12 p.m. Sunday, driving a stolen vehicle near Arlington Street and Wellington Avenue.
Police allege he refused to stop for them and ended up crashing into a cruiser car before being taken into custody.
Police had been looking for Baker after a Nov. 1 incident that saw a woman escape a kidnapping by jumping out of a speeding SUV after being beaten and dragged into a vehicle from a Winnipeg bus stop.
She was rushed to hospital after escaping on the Trans-Canada Highway near Deacon’s Corner.
Another suspect, 22, was arrested the day after the incident and faces more than a half-dozen charges, including kidnapping and uttering threats.
A warrant was out for Baker’s arrest on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, uttering threats and robbery — as well as driving while suspended — and he now faces new charges from the Sunday arrest, including motor vehicle theft, fleeing police, impaired driving and two counts of assaulting an officer with a weapon.
