TULSA – A kidnapping suspect is behind bars after the victim was forced to make a quick escape.

Tulsa police arrested Michael Jackson for allegedly holding the owner of a white Ford truck at gunpoint over the weekend.

Officers say the victim was able to escape his captors by going to the restroom. Jackson attempted to drive off in the reported stolen truck but was later found by witness who called police on Monday.

Currently, Tulsa police say, Jackson is being held on a $150,000 bond. Authorities went to say that they believe another man possibly assisted Jackson in holding the victim at gunpoint but no other details were released about that suspect at this time.
