MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A KFC employee saved the day over the weekend after calling the police when a woman left a note begging for help, according to court records.
Diego Glay, 23, is charged with evading arrest and kidnapping after allegedly holding a woman against her will.
On May 15, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) responded to a kidnapping/abduction call in the 6200 block of Winchester Road just after 5 p.m.
