Video of a suspect possibly connected to a
kidnapping in Crestview Hills, Ky. last month.
(Crestview Hills, Ky.) – Police believe they know the identity of a man who kidnapped a 74-year-old woman in Northern Kentucky last month.
Ann Ernst was kidnapped in her own car from the Crestview Hills Town Center on May 31. A man wearing a floppy, military style hat and showed a gun and forced her to drive across the Ohio River.
The suspect left Ernst tied to a tree in Cleves as he made off with her car and purse. She was able to free herself and find help.
Police released two videos of the suspect Thursday. One shows the suspect wearing the distinctive hat in line at a Speedway gas station in Covington.
The other video is from the parking lot at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Covington, where the victim’s car was found.
The videos show a man fairly similar to the description Ann Ernst gave investigators, who then developed a sketch of the suspect.
Anybody who can help identify the suspect is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (513) 352-3040.
