The woman was taken from her Forest Park home on Murray Lake Court to a home in Southwest Atlanta by her ex-boyfriend on Monday. She was held in a house in the 200th block of Fletcher Street until Wednesday. Before fleeing, she was able to text her current boyfriend, who alerted her mother, who then contacted Clayton police, Soto said.
The Atlanta Police Department’s SWAT team and the Clayton County police arrived at the home shortly after the woman escaped. After executing a search warrant, officers arrested Jawaski Antwon Cross on kidnapping charges.
