AUGUSTA, Ga. -- A man accused of kidnapping an Augusta mother and her child has been indicted.

Sapp allegedly went up to a woman at a gas station on 15th Street and held her at knifepoint before forcing her to drive away.

The victim and her 2-year-old daughter were able to escape after a good Samaritan pulled her daughter from the car, but not before Sapp allegedly punched Nay in the face several times, breaking her nose.
