A North Carolina man was arrested Thursday night and charged with kidnapping after attempting to force his girlfriend into his car to take her to North Carolina.
Cartersville police arrived on the scene of the Sunoco Station located at 2471 Highway 411 in reference to a domestic dispute in progress. Upon arrival the officer met with Mohammed Shoeb Ahmed outside the store. He told officer he was taking the victim to North Carolina.
The victim told officer that Ahmed had physically struck her a few days prior. The victim stated she had been dating Ahmed and was trying to end the relationship. She said when he struck her earlier in the week she fled with her 5-year-old daughter. She said Ahmed had been looking for her and finally located her at All American Laundry and forced her and the child into the car. She said he drove them around for over an hour arguing. She said she told Ahmed she wanted out of the vehicle, but he refused to let her out. She states that he eventually pulled into the Sunoco Station where he is employed and pulled her out the vehicle. Inside, she called 911 as the clerk kept Ahmed away from her.
Bartow County deputies were also dispatched to assist. Ahmed told a deputy that he got mad at the victim and hit her. He said he didn't mean to hit her, he just got into a rage. Due to physical marks and statements, Ahmed was placed under arrest for two counts of kidnapping, battery under the Family Violence Act and cruelty to children.
Verbal dispute forbids 911 call
During a verbal argument between a couple Friday night at 100 Somerset Club Drive, the husband called for a Bartow County deputy. While attempting to place the call, his wife ripped the cord from the phone and the dispute continued, adding demeaning statements directed towards the man. In a desire for law enforcement to be present on the scene, the husband then went next door to a neighbor to try to place the call. While knocking on the door the woman allegedly pulled him down to the ground as the verbal fight continued. There was no physical evidence visible to provide a foundation for a simple battery claim, but the woman was arrested and charged with interfering with a 911 call.
