McCUNE — A Cherryvale man is in jail today following his arrest on kidnapping charges Thursday morning.
According to a release from the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office, at about 9:52 a.m. Thursday deputies were dispatched to Mc Cune, regarding a domestic disturbance call. The caller indicated that a female was taken against her will from 303 Brunetti Drive by her estranged husband.
The victim, Sunny S. Hedges, 29, of McCune, alleges that her husband, Jasper L. Hedges, 35, of Cherryvale, came to the residence and following a verbal dispute, forced her into a tan Chevrolet truck at knifepoint and left the area. One of Sunny Hedges family members followed the truck into rural Cherokee County. At some point, Sunny Hedges indicated that she was able to exit the truck and get into the family member’s car and flee back to McCune.
Deputies located Jasper Hedges at another residence in McCune, where he was taken into custody. He was taken to the Crawford County Jail and was booked in on kidnapping, domestic battery and driving while suspended. The Kansas Department of Corrections has placed a hold on Jasper Hedges for possible parole violations. He is being held without bond.
The incident remains under investigation by the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office.
