MANITOWOC, Wis. (CBS 58) – Two men are facing charges after abducting a woman from her home in Manitowoc.

The Manitowoc Police Department says Tamario Williams and 23-year-old Jamal Rudd II are facing several charges after driving from Milwaukee to Manitowoc to kidnap the woman.

Police say on Thursday morning, the two men arrived at the victim's home. According to authorities, Rudd went inside the unlocked home to confront the victim about stolen property. Rudd then allegedly physically assaulted the victim and repeatedly strangled her while threatening to kill her. Williams stayed in the car.

Authorities say Rudd then dragged the victim outside of her home and into the car. While struggling to get her into the vehicle, a window was broken on the victim's parked car. The victim's dog followed the two outside the home and eventually got into the suspect's vehicle. While the suspects were en-route back to Milwaukee, the victim was repeatedly assaulted.  

According to police, the victim's husband arrived home and noticed the broken car window and blood outside the home. He called police.

Around 8 a.m., the victim jumped out of the car traveling south on Interstate 43. As she was climbing out of the car window, police say a tire may have run over her arm.

She was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The suspects continued south on I-43 and Rudd eventually got out of the car in Sheboygan County. Authorities then began searching for Rudd. He was captured Friday morning around 6 a.m. in the city of Sheboygan. Police say he had several outstanding warrants.

The victim's dog was eventually released from the car and turned over to the Sheboygan County animal shelter. Williams was arrested Thursday in Ozaukee County.

Police say both men are currently being held in the Manitowoc County Jail. Williams is facing charges of party to the crime of kidnapping, intimidation of a witness, intimidation of a victim and false imprisonment.

Rudd is facing charges of kidnapping, intimidation of a witness, intimidation of a victim, false imprisonment, strangulation, battery and burglary.
