ALBUQUERQUE -- Albuquerque police arrested a man accused of holding a woman against her will for nearly 12 hours on Wednesday. They say it's not his first time facing a kidnapping charge.

Around 6:45 p.m., officers responded to an apartment complex in the area of Coors and Sequoia in reference to a domestic dispute.

A woman at the apartment said she had been held captive since about 7 a.m. When she tried to leave, she said the suspect, Myron Mixon, would repeatedly punch her in the head. At one point, she said Mixon dragged her from her vehicle back into the apartment.

As officers made contact with the victim, they heard the suspect attempting to climb out an upstairs window.

After a short chase, officers arrested Mixon. He was booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on two counts of kidnapping, along with charges from an outstanding felony warrant for a parole violation related to a separate kidnapping case.
