A man has been charged with kidnapping after he allegedly held a woman and child against their will.
Grady County Dispatch received a 911 call from a reporting party on Wednesday who said Steven Loyd had a knife and would not let the woman and child leave the residence in Ninnekah.
When authorities arrived, dispatch informed them the woman was able to escape with the child in her vehicle.
According to the incident report, Loyd was under the influence of methamphetamine and exhibiting signs of paranoia. Loyd allegedly said someone was in the residence trying to harm him, the woman and child.
Loyd allegedly became increasingly agitated, causing the woman to lock herself in a spare bedroom with the child. Loyd then allegedly broke into the room while holding a knife and would not allow the woman to leave, the report said.
While Loyd was distracted, the woman was able to open a window and push the child outside. Loyd then jumped over the woman to exit the window, and allegedly headed towards the minor. The woman then jumped out the window and onto Loyd, giving the child time to escape to the car, the report said.
Ninnekah Police made contact with Loyd and detained him. The officers informed Loyd he was being charged with kidnapping. He told police he did not kidnap the woman and child, he only wanted to keep them safe from the people trying to get them and was just trying to escape with them when they ran away, according to the incident report.
Ninnekah Police located a glass pipe and plastic baggie containing a substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine.
