HOUSTON – Houston police are investigating after a woman said she was kidnapped by a man after he offered her a ride Monday morning.

The woman said she was walking down the street when a man she knew asked her if she needed a ride and offered to take her to breakfast.

The woman said she accepted the ride, but once inside the vehicle, the man allegedly told her he was taking her to Austin.

The woman secretly called police and gave clues to her whereabouts.

Police caught up to the man's Range Rover and pulled it over at Trey and Pine Forest.

The man was arrested for warrants.

Police have not said how they will proceed on the alleged kidnapping because the woman got into the car willingly, although she did not agree to go out of town with the man.
