After two days of being held captive a 54-year-old woman said she freed herself from a midtown home Sunday morning, Tucson police said.

The Tucson woman said she had been tied up inside a residence in the 3800 block of East Monte Vista Drive since Friday, Officer Chuck Rydzak said.

Police responded to a 911 call from the woman just before 11 a.m. Sunday, and found her alone at the residence, Rydzak said.

The woman had minor burn injuries from the rope on her hands, he said.

Police believe the kidnapping was not a random act.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
