A kidnapping and assault suspect was captured Tuesday by Massachusetts State Police and local police.

According to Foxborough Police, just after 1:30 p.m., Southeastern Massachusetts Regional Emergency Communications Center received a call about a possible fight inside an apartment in Foxborough. Officer Dion arrived on scene and was let in by a distraught victim. The suspect, who was still inside, struggled with Officer Dion then jumped from a second-floor balcony.

Officer McGrath arrived on scene and located the suspect fleeing in a vehicle. He engaged in a pursuit in an attempt to stop the suspect, who fled into Mansfield. For safety reasons, Officer McGrath, who was operating a police motorcycle, discontinued the pursuit.

The suspect was located a few moments later by Massachusetts State Police. The suspect initially stopped for the Trooper, but then sped off and fled into Sharon.

Eventually, the suspect exited the highway onto South Main Street in Sharon, but then quickly got back on the highway. Once back on the highway, Foxborough units assisted the Trooper in an attempt to stop the suspect. He eventually stopped and was safely taken into custody.

The suspect, a 24-year-old Massachusetts man, will be arraigned Wednesday in Wrentham District Court on charges of strangulation, kidnapping, assault and battery on an intimate partner, negligent operation, failure to stop for a police vehicle, and obstruction of justice.

Due to the domestic violence nature of the call, according to Massachusetts law, officials could not provide more details.
