Sunday morning officers were called to the Pony Gentlemen's Club to investigate a kidnapping in progress of one of the workers.

The call came from a concerned co-worker who witnessed the kidnapping in progress.

When EPD got there, they were told that the victim had just finished her shift at the club and got into a silver Dodge Charger.

The co-worker witnessed the assault and the car flee with the victim inside. EPD said the car fled to the Tippecanoe and Shamrock Dr. intersection before allowing the victim out of the car.

"The victim and her boyfriend had gotten into a verbal argument, the victim tried to get away knowing that the argument was escalating," said Sgt. Anna Gray. "the suspect kind of grabbed her and pulled her back into the car so that she couldn't get away and then he drove off."

According to the initial police report, the suspect pulled out a handgun to get the victim back into the car.

When EPD got to the scene, the victim was back at the Pony. Where she was safe with minor injuries.

After further speaking to the victim, EPD does know who the suspect is. No charges have been pressed against him.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
