Police arrested a man who allegedly burst into a San Antonio neighborhood home Monday night and tried to drag a woman by the neck out to her car, according to a statement by the Mountain View Police Department.
Police say the 33-year-old man fled the scene, but was found several hours later standing on top of a carport in the same area. Officers used a fire department ladder to bring down the suspect, identified as Jeremiah Porter, who was then arrested on suspicion of kidnapping.
Porter reportedly tried to force the victim to get into her car, but she was able to break free and run to a neighbor's home, police said.
Nearly five hours later, police received reports of a man who was throwing rocks at windows and yelling on the 2700 block of Del Medio Court, a short distance from the Montelena Court home. After Porter was arrested, the victim identified him as the man who attacked her.
Porter, a transient, was arrested on suspicion of robbery and attempted kidnapping charges. He is being held in Santa Clara County jail.
Police say Porter likely had contact with other residents in the area. Anyone who may have seen Porter between late Friday night through Tuesday morning is asked to contact Officer Bobby Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
