Kidnapping Victims Rescued

When a Salem area woman returned to her home Friday afternoon, a man armed with a knife was waiting inside. 

He held the woman and her child overnight.

On Saturday she was able to convince the man to take her to a Dick’s Sporting Goods store. When she was inside of the store she mouthed the words “Help me” to customers who called 911.

Deputies took 25-year-old Christopher Hahn-Collins into custody.

Detectives do not believe that Hahn-Collins knew the victim at the time of her kidnapping. Hahn-Collins has been lodged at the Marion County Jail for the crimes of Kidnapping 1 x 2, Menacing, Burglary 1, Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon, Giving False Information to the Police and a Parole Violation Warrant for Sex Abuse. 

The Marion County Sheriff's Office is seeking any information regarding Mr. Hahn-Collins.
