COLUMBIA — A Central Pennsylvania man allegedly used a gun to kidnap his ex-girlfriend early Sunday but was caught a short time later at his apartment.

Jonathan Marizan-Diaz, 24, of Columbia showed a gun when he saw his ex-girlfriend walking with another man about 3 a.m., police said.

The woman told police that Marizan-Diaz forced her to go with him and that she was afraid.

They were found a short time later in his apartment.

Marizan-Diaz was charged with kidnapping, unlawful restraint, terroristic threats, stalking and simple assault.

He's being held in Lancaster County jail, unable to post $50,000 bond.

No attorney was listed on court papers. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Friday.
