A man is in jail after he allegedly kidnapped a young teen and abused them in Kalamazoo Wednesday night.

The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says that a 13-year-old girl had been waiting for a bus on Portage St. Wednesday, when a man approached her and forced her to enter his car; the man then allegedly drove the victim to a home on Clinton St, where he sexually assaulted her.

When the suspect left the victim alone to speak with someone who had entered the home, she was able to call 911, and the man was then arrested at the scene around 8pm. The suspect is now facing charges of kidnapping and 1st degree criminal sexual conduct.
