A Medford man who allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home and abducted her early Wednesday morning was arrested later in the day in Georgia, Suffolk County police said.
Camden County Sheriff officers apprehended Christopher Ryan, 23, at 10:25 p.m. after he made the 900-plus mile drive south, police said.
Suffolk police said Ryan will be extradited back to the county at a later date to face burglary, robbery and kidnapping charges.
Ryan’s long trip south began at 5 a.m., police said, when he allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s Oakdale home and forced her into her 2014 Mercedes Benz. The woman, who was not identified, was able to flee after Ryan momentarily stopped the car in Ozone Park, Queens, police said.
The woman, who is 46 years old, ran out of the car and was able to get help and call 911, a police spokeswoman said.
The victim suffered minor injuries, police said.
