Theodore James Walker, 26, of 108 Timber Hollow Court in Chapel Hill, is charged with second-degree kidnapping, assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in the May 12 incident. He remains in the Orange County jail under a $5 million bond.
An 18-year-old woman was jogging along Columbia Street when a man doused her with pepper spray and dragged her to a car in a Rosemary Street parking lot, police said. Two brothers intervened, and the woman was released unharmed.
One of the brothers was hit by a car as the assailant fled the area.
Chapel Hill police seized clothes, legal documents, condoms, credit cards and a Revlon makeup compact from Walker when he was booked into the jail, according to a search warrant. The warrant also states that jailers found "letters containing women's names and the details of a possible break-in" on Walker.
Walker also is charged with hit-and-run in connection with an April incident in Pitt County that left a 20-year-old woman injured. He told authorities that the woman jumped out of his car after trying to grab his keys.
