Police Searching For Man That Beat Up Church Volunteer

OCALA, Fla. (AP) — Police are looking for a man who kidnapped and beat a church volunteer who was providing meals to the needy.

Ocala police say the 69-year-old woman got into her car Monday night after serving meals when a man hiding inside put a knife to her neck and told her to drive.

Police say he told her to pull over, put a rope around her neck and dragged her from the car, then beat her with a small club. Police say the man ordered her back into the car and removed her dentures when she tried to bite him.

Police say the suspect later beat the woman unconscious in a Kmart parking lot.

She later awoke and found the man gone, and managed to report the incident.
