McINTOSH COUNTY, Oklahoma - Investigators say an armed man kidnapped a McIntosh County tow truck driver at gunpoint on Monday.

The District Attorney’s office says the truck driver stopped to help Rafael Torres who had crashed into a ditch.

They say the Torres then pulled a gun forcing the driver back into his truck and demanding a ride to Arkansas. Sometime after crossing the state line detectives say the victim was able to escape and contact police.

Torres was arrested a short time later.
