Parolee arrested after allegedly kidnapping woman

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A parolee was back behind bars Friday after being arrested in Rancho Bernardo in the company of a 21-year-old woman he allegedly had kidnapped, authorities reported.

Officers found Benjamin Ian Hill, 33, and the alleged victim in the 17100 block of West Bernardo Drive shortly before 9:30 a.m. Thursday while responding to a report of a man with a gun in the area, according to San Diego police. The woman was unharmed, SDPD Sgt. Ray Battrick said.

About 90 minutes earlier, she and Hill had been in a 2007 Honda Accord that stalled in the area of Landscape Drive and Parkside Avenue in Paradise Hills. When a passer-by stopped to help them get the car started, the alleged victim told him that she was being held captive, Battrick said.

After the pair drove off, the good Samaritan made an emergency call and reported what the woman had said.

Hill was booked on suspicion of violating terms of his parole and was being held without bail. As of Friday, no court date in the case had been set, a jail clerk said.
