Raleigh, N.C. — Raleigh police on Friday night charged a man with kidnapping, assault and a list of other offenses after he allegedly pulled an ex-girlfriend from her home and forced her into a vehicle that later crashed on New Bern Avenue.
Officers were dispatched to the 200 block of Merrell Drive shortly before 4:45 a.m., after an unidentified person called 911 reporting that the woman's ex-boyfriend showed up at her house and dragged her by the hair into his gray Ford Explorer.
"The only reason why I'm calling is because she's told me before that he has threatened her, that he would kill her and that he didn't care if he ended up in jail," the caller said. "The only thing I'm worried about is her."
About five minutes later, police received another 911 call from a woman reporting a single-vehicle crash involving an overturned SUV in the eastbound lane of New Bern Avenue between Trawick Road and Corporation Parkway.
"They're out of the car," said the caller. "The lady is on the ground. She's bleeding everywhere."
Raleigh police arrested Jonathan Xavier Mejia, 22, of 5601 Water Oaks Drive in Raleigh, on charges of reckless driving to endanger, felony serious injury by vehicle, resisting a public officer, driving while impaired, first-degree kidnapping and misdemeanor assault.
Mejia has a record of violence against women. In March 2012 he was convicted of assault on a female and spent 35 days in jail.
