OGDEN -- An Ogden man remained in Weber County Jail on Tuesday after police say he assaulted, handcuffed and held another man captive for six hours.

Gary Alan Rushing, 28, has been booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated kidnapping, assault and never obtaining a driver's license.

Rushing's bond has been set at $20,000. He will have a video arraignment on the charges today.

A probable cause affidavit states that, on Jan. 12, Rushing handcuffed a man, punched him in the face and held him against his will.

The incident occurred at Rushing's residence at 137 Patterson Ave., the affidavit states.

Following the ordeal, the victim, who was still handcuffed, managed to walk into the Kwick Stop Sinclair convenience store at 110 Patterson Ave., said Police Lt. Danielle Croyle.

The manager on duty at the Kwick Stop Sinclair said the victim came to the store around 10 p.m. Jan. 12, begging for help.

"He knocked on the window (of the store), saying, 'Help me. Help me,'" the manager said Tuesday in a telephone interview. "He was cut on the face and bleeding, with no jacket and no shoes."

Store employees summoned an ambulance, Croyle said.

Details about the victim and his injuries were unavailable. Croyle said the victim and Rushing are believed to be acquainted.

Additional details regarding a possible motive for the crime and how Rushing was apprehended were not released by police.

The incident remains under investigation.
