Deputies in Rockdale County say an armed and dangerous kidnapping suspect is behind bars.

Aric Nigel Flemister was wanted in Rockdale County since Saturday when authorities believe he abducted a woman.

Investigators say Flemister abducted the woman, who is known to him, around 7 p.m. Saturday from a home in the Quincy Crossing subdivision in Rockdale County. A family member was able to call 911.

DeKalb County police say the Nissan Sentra which Flemister was believed to be driving was spotted and officers later found the woman near Welsy Chapel, some 15 miles away from her home. She told police he kicked her out of the car.

He was later arrested.

Investigators say Flemister also faces charges for a separate kidnapping incident in DeKalb County.

Flemister was charged with kidnapping, batter (FVA), stalking, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and theft by taking, according to the DeKalb County Jail’s online records.
