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.
No further details have been released at this time.
