DES MOINES – Iowa authorities have a suspect in custody whom they claim kidnapped his girlfriend, terrorized her, and ran her over with his car.

Just before 9 PM Saturday night, December 2, 2023, Des Moines patrol officers were notified by officers with the Osceola Police Department that a 32-yr-old female was at the Clark County Hospital reporting that at approximately 2:30 a.m., she had been bound with duct tape and kidnapped from her Des Moines home by her ex-boyfriend and held until being dropped off outside the hospital. The victims injuries were serious, and she was transferred to a Des Moines hospital for surgery.

Detectives were able to interview the victim following surgery.

Evidence indicates that after being taken from her home, the victim was moved to a residence in Indianola where she was held against her will. The victim was later place into a vehicle and transported to an unknown location outside of Indianola where she was forced out of the vehicle. The victim was then choked, run over by the vehicle, and had her throat cut. The victim pleaded for her attacker to stop. The victim was placed back in the vehicle and was driven to the Clark County Hospital and dropped off in the street.

Late Sunday afternoon, DMPD detectives executed a search warrant at a residence in Indianola. 40-yr-old Indianola resident Jordan Mangum has been charged with Kidnapping-1st Degree, Willful Injury, and Violation of a No Contact Order. He is being held at the Polk County Jail.

The victim remains hospitalized as she recovers from her injuries.
