A South Side man who was wanted in connection with the kidnapping of his common-law wife is now in jail.
San Antonio police arrested Robert Solis, 39, Thursday on a charge of aggravated kidnapping, a little more than a week after he was featured in a Crime Stoppers report that aired on local TV stations.
An arrest warrant affidavit stated that Solis is accused of holding his common-law wife against her will inside her home in the 6300 block of Macdona Street on Jan. 6.
The 28-year-old woman said he used duct tape, a leather belt and handcuffs to tie her up, then repeatedly shocked her with a stun gun.
The affidavit stated that the woman told police Solis also threatened to kill her and their two children, and shared his plan for wrapping their bodies in a tarp he had in his car.
She said when Solis went outside to move the car closer to her home, she untied her hands and escaped to a neighbor's house where she got help, the affidavit stated.
By the time officers arrived, Solis was gone. The San Antonio Police Department asked for the public's help in locating him through a Crime Stoppers report which aired the following day. The affidavit does not mention how or where police located Solis.
