Man charged with kidnap and rape after woman allegedly taken against her will

A 25-year-old man has been charged following reports that a woman was taken against her will.

It is reported that she was taken from Mansfield Woodhouse on Saturday, 9 October 2021, and driven around various areas of the country, including Derbyshire, London, and Cornwall. The woman is also believed to have been assaulted.

Police were called and, after she was located, she arrived home over a week later on Sunday (17 October 2021).

Jonathan Cook, of Holbeck Lane, Worksop, has since been charged with kidnap, stalking, rape and assault.

Detective Sergeant Vanessa Wightman, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “We are working closely with the woman and her family to provide support and conduct a thorough investigation following this traumatic incident which has been reported to us.
