PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla — The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office says a man accused of attempting to kidnap a woman while she was running in a park is now in jail.

24-year-old Victor Brown Jr. was arrested Tuesday evening and is charged with Kidnapping a Person to Facilitate a Felony and Violation of probation or community control.

CCSO says the incident happened on November 07, 2019.

They say a man wearing a ski mask forced a woman into the woods near Ollie Park, and during a scuffle, his blood got on her shirt.

The blood was analyzed and linked to Brown through a CODIS hit.

Detectives also discovered Brown was living approximately fifteen hundred feet away from where the incident happened.
