DALLAS -- Police have located a missing woman and the man they say kidnapped her from an apartment complex in East Dallas late Monday night.

At about 11:30 p.m. Monday, officers were called to the 11700 block of Ferguson Road, where a witness told them Shanique Banks had been taken against her will by a man they know as Desmond Jennings.

She said Banks asked her to walk with her to the store, but when they left the witness' apartment, they saw Jennings, 56, walking toward them. The women ran into the apartment as Jennings reportedly told the victim to come outside.

He pushed his way in before the women could close the door, the witness says, and forced the victim to leave with him at knifepoint.
