A kidnapper who had the nerve to chase a woman into a karate studio at night is now regretting his action.
A man tries to kidnap a woman by forcing her into his car, in north Charlotte, North Carolina. She breaks free, and runs into a nearby karate studio pleading for help.
You can already see how this ends: with the suspect being carried out on a stretcher after a fight with a karate head instructor.
The incident happened at 9 p.m. Thursday outside Bushiken Karate Charlotte Dojo, according to CNN affiliate WSOC and the head instructor, Randall Ephraim.
WSOC reported that cops said the man tried to force the woman in his vehicle near the karate school.
Ephraim told CNN he was straightening up when the woman rushed inside the studio.
Ephraim said he asked the man to leave, but he stated he was not going anywhere. “He then tried to force himself further into the dojo, aggressively pushing and swinging,” the instructor said.
The suspect also tried to assault police officers before he was arrested, WSOC reports.
He was taken to the hospital with injuries. There’s no word on his condition at this point.
