An Idaho Falls girl luckily avoided an attempted abduction with quick thinking. Being held in a car against her will by a man she knew, Katie Graves escaped to safety by calling her mother and hiding in the nearby brush. Joes Luis Torres has been charged with kidnapping, battery with intent and driving under the influence.
Local police officer Sgt Phil Grimes offered additional safety tips including “Have your cell phone with you, powered on so your location can be traced. Use pepper spray to defend yourself against an attacker of any size. And if you're out at night or on a run, have a buddy with you.” For more information on this story click here - http://www.localnews8.com/news/26437945/detail.html
