Colusa Police say a man held his ex-girlfriend captive for 10 days, but the suspect’s grandmother says the woman was not in the apartment against her will.

“She wasn’t captive. She comes and goes whenever she wants to,” said Juanita Roberts, of the woman involved in the kidnapping case.

Juanita and neighbors report seeing the woman coming and going from the apartment even during the 10 days she was said to be kidnapped.

Colusa Police, though, say the victim came to them badly hurt. The injuries are consistent with her version, that ex-boyfriend Jermaine Roberts beat her the first time she tried to escape, according to police.
