Man arrested in Washington state in possible kidnapping of Fargo woman

YAKIMA, Wash. - Yakima police arrested a man Saturday they suspect kidnapped a 19-year-old woman in Fargo and took her to Yakima, according to a story on the Yakima Herald-Republic Web site.

The woman, whose identify wasn't released, was unharmed, the Yakima newspaper said.

Fargo police said Sunday night they had contacted officials in Yakima but were unable to receive information on the case.

Yakima police couldn't be reached for comment by The Forum.

But police there told the Yakima Herald-Republic that the woman had known the man, described as "a mutual friend," for only a few days.

The pair left on Fargo on Thursday and checked into a Yakima motel Saturday, according to the newspaper.

The woman called police and said she had been kidnapped, the newspaper said.
