BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - Bossier City detectives have made an arrest in connection with a woman who had been abducted early Wednesday morning from her job.

Violent Crimes Unit have arrested 24-year old Katoya Smith Johnson this afternoon for second degree kidnapping and have an arrest warrant for her husband 31-year old Christopher Michael Johnson on a charge of second degree kidnapping.

At around 7:30 a.m., Bossier City police were called to the Family Dollar Store off of Barksdale Blvd. Witnesses tell police, that a man, Christopher Johnson, walked into the Family Dollar Store and forced a woman out the store and into a vehicle.

Christopher Johnson then drove the vehicle to his house in Shreveport where the victim was allowed to leave a few hours later. She was not harmed.
