GRANT COUNTY, Wash. - On Monday, the Grant County Sheriff's Office arrested a 30-year-old man accused of kidnapping and beating his ex-girlfriend.

The Sheriff's Office said Roberto Rodriguez of Quincy had been on the run since May 3rd, and the Moses Lake Regional Tactical Response Team and Grant County Interagency Narcotics Enforcement Team tracked Rodriguez down to a house in Quincy on Monday. 

After watching the house, deputies say Rodriguez left in a vehicle, and when they tried to stop the car, it took off at a high rate of speed. During the pursuit, the car slowed down and Rodriguez jumped out and ran. He was located a short time later hiding under a tree. 

Rodriguez was booked on charges of Kidnapping, Burglary, Assault, Unlawful Imprisonment, and harassment. Police say Rodriguez's 25-year-old ex-girlfriend suffered broken bones in her face and other wounds during the attack.
