A 33-year-old city man was jailed Tuesday after his girlfriend told police he had forced her into his vehicle and assaulted her in his home and car before she got away on foot.

Kenneth J. Smith, 40 Lake Village Court, was charged with kidnapping and domestic assault. Police said in a news release that a woman filed a report stating that Smith forced her into a vehicle and took her to his residence, where he assaulted her.

According to the affidavit of complaint against Smith, Jessica Jones told police that Smith, her boyfriend of about a year, got her to pull over her vehicle on the Bristol Highway near Carroll Creek Road on Saturday and told her if she did not get into his vehicle “she had it coming to her.”
