A woman is behind bars after allegedly holding a man hostage in his home for nearly two weeks.

Franklin County Sheriff Ricky Jones said the 59-year-old man was able to escape last week and ran to a neighbor’s home near Mount Vernon.

He was taken to the hospital and is being treated for injuries he sustained while being bound and beaten by the 43-year-old woman.

Officials said the woman used a pistol, which she allegedly fired several times, to keep the man hostage since Valentine’s Day.
