Iowa man facing charges after alleged kidnapping of Nebraska woman

SIOUX CITY, Iowa -- An Iowa man is accused of using homemade chloroform to try and kidnap a Nebraska woman.

Police in South Sioux City say 20-year-old Zack Smith hid in the backseat of a his ex-girlfriend's car and used zip ties, duct tape and homemade chloroform to abduct her and imprison her in a storage shed at his home.

Police say the woman was reported missing Thursday morning after her car was found abandoned with her purse and cell phone inside.

Police say the woman managed to escape from the shed while police were searching for her.

Police arrested Smith early Friday on charges of kidnapping, false imprisonment and two counts of assault. His bond has been set at $250,000.
