Deputies charged a man with kidnapping after he forced a woman and her child into his truck and took off, according to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department. 

Deputies reported Shannon Thornburg, of Mosheim, TN, came to a home on Solomon Road and forced the two victims into his truck and left with them.

The woman told deputies she told Thornburg to leave and he wouldn’t. According to an incident report, the woman tried to get in her car and that’s when Thornburg grabbed her and their daughter and forced them into his truck. 

Thornburg took the victims to an apartment where another woman forced him to release them. Deputies later arrested Thornburg at his mother’s house.

He is charged with kidnapping. His bond was set at $75,000.
