LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is facing serious charges after a woman was beaten and robbed early Monday.

According to an arrest report, the victim told police she was stopped at a gas station at 26th and Broadway in the early morning hours of June 9 when "a man jumped into the back seat of her vehicle, threatened her and told her to drive."

The victim told police she drove the suspect, now identified as 33-year-old Jorohn Johnson, to the 2500 block of Jefferson Street, and that's when the suspect allegedly got out of the vehicle and opened her door, demanding that she give him all her money. Police say the two struggled when Johnson grabbed the victim's purse.

As Johnson was punching the victim, police say the victim bit him on the upper arm. Police say a witness driving by the scene saw Johnson on top of the victim and yelled for him to stop. Johnson ran away, but was arrested a short time later at 26th and Muhammad Ali.

The victim told police that Johnson took $30 from her.

Johnson is charged with kidnapping and robbery. He's being held at Metro Corrections on a $50,000 full cash bond.
