(KSTP) – A Minneapolis man is facing several charges after a woman at a Cannon Falls convenience store said she’d been abducted by him.

As previously reported, Cannon Falls police were called to a Casey’s store at around 10:50 a.m. Saturday on a report of a woman crying in the bathroom, saying she’d been abducted.

While en route, police saw a person matching the suspect’s description in a parked car, the criminal complaint states. When the police chief turned around to talk to the person in the car, it took off and a pursuit started.

According to the complaint, after the chief found the suspect’s car, the vehicle collided with the squad near Riverside Park, and the suspect vehicle then almost hit a woman who was on the road. The suspect then sped off again and got onto Highway 52 north.

After a pursuit that reached 124 mph, the driver was eventually arrested by Faribault police, and the victim’s purse and identifying cards were found inside.

The victim told police she was in Minneapolis and had gone to a concert with her boyfriend and other friends. However, when she and her boyfriend got into an argument, she threw her phone down and walked a couple blocks from the hotel they were at.

She then became unsure of where she was and got into the suspect’s vehicle, believing it was a rideshare that could take her back to her vehicle in the parking ramp. Instead, the man refused to let her out and drove through several cities.

The complaint states the victim couldn’t remember all of the cities they’d gone through but said the man repeatedly told her that he wouldn’t let her out unless she had sex with him.

Eventually, she said she needed to go to the bathroom so the man stopped at the Cannon Falls Casey’s store and she asked those inside to call the police.

ABC 6 News reached out to Casey’s employees, but were unable to comment on the situation on camera.

“I’ve worked at this Casey’s and other Casey’s kind of around the area, within a couple of hours of this one and I don’t know personally hearing about the abduction that happened, It’s scary,” Cannon Falls resident Rebecca Dunn said.

The man — 25-year-old Daquairus Nathaniel Black — is charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment, gun possession and fleeing police. Kidnapping can carry up to 20 years in prison with a conviction.

Black’s bail is $1 million and he’s due back in court in October.
