Sioux Falls Man Charged With Kidnapping


59-YEAR-OLD SIOUX FALLS MAN IS BEHIND BARS THIS MIDDAY, ACCUSED OF KIDNAPPING AND SEXUALLY ASSAULTING A WOMAN. THIS WAS THE SCENE WE SHOWED YOU FIRST ON KELOLAND NEWS AT 10 LAST NIGHT, BUT IT ALL STARTED ON FRIDAY WHEN THE VICTIM WENT TO A BAR. POLICE SAY SHE MET THE SUSPECT KERMIT LEWIS AND HE ENDED UP KEEPING HER IN HIS APARTMENT FOR SEVERAL DAYS. HE LET HER LEAVE THE APARTMENT YESTERDAY… AND SHE CALLED 9-1-1. “EVENTUALLY THE SWAT TEAM CAME IN, TOOK HIM INTO CUSTODY. THERE WASN’T ANY ISSUES OR PROBLEMS WITH THAT.” HE WAS CHARGED WITH 2ND DEGREE KIDNAPPING. MORE CHARGES COULD BE COMING. WE’RE DIGGING INTO HIS CRIMINAL HISTORY WHICH DATES BACK TO THE 1980S. WE ARE WORKING FOR THAT STORY FOR TONIGHT ON KELOLAND NEWS.
