Woman Kidnapped after She Stopped her Car to Help Flat-Tired Driver in Wisconsin

Whitewater, WI: On Monday, investigators revealed that a guy from the Chicago area abducted a woman from Wisconsin in February, claiming to have a flat tire.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office announced over the weekend the arrest of 28-year-old North Chicago resident Jonatan Luna-Carrasco, who was connected to the kidnapping that occurred on February 25.

According to authorities, a lady called 911 in Lake County just after 2 a.m. on February 25 to report that an unknown guy had abducted her friend.

A 22-year-old Whitewater, Wisconsin woman, and her companion were returning home from a nightclub in Waukegan, Illinois. According to officials, Luna-Carrasco came up in his car next to theirs on US Route 41 and claimed to have a flat tire.

They supposedly pulled over when he offered to fix the tire. Supposedly, he urged the abducted woman to remain warm in his vehicle.

According to the sheriff’s office, “he fled with her against her will” after the victim got into Luna-Carrasco’s car. “The victim was able to jump out of the car in the 3500 block of Highland Avenue, Gurnee, and run to a home to ask for help.”

Using Flock camera technology, which can read license plates and notify authorities, detectives located Luna-Carrasco’s gray Dodge Durango.

He will appear in court on Monday after his arrest in Waukegan on March 30. He is currently being held in the Lake County Jail.
