A Henderson man was arrested over the weekend on kidnapping, assault and other charges.

According to Henderson Police, they arrested 25 year old Cody Jones of Riverdale Court around 11:50 p.m. Sunday for holding a female against her will. Police report the female tried to leave the home several times but Jones put her in a headlock and pulled her back into the residence, which was witnessed by several people. Authorities say the female finally escaped the home and called 911. Police indicate the female suffered minor injuries as a result of the assault.

Police say Jones resisted officers when he was placed into custody and kicked one of the officers several times.

Jones was lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center for Kidnapping (Adult), Assault 4th Degree – Domestic Violence, Assault 3rd Degree (Police Officer), Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest.
