WINTER HAVEN (FOX 13) -

A Winter Haven man faces kidnapping and robbery charges after police say he grabbed a woman while she was jogging at the Lake Howard Nature Park.

Investigators say Bruce L. Johnson, 52, of Winter Haven came behind the female while she was jogging and tripped her.

He then grabbed both her arms in an attempt to quiet her screams, police said. However, she continued to scream, so Johnson grabbed her cell phone and ran off, according to police.

A police K-9 unite tracked the man down to a wooded area where he was hiding. The woman showed no signs of injuries.

Johnson is in custody at the Polk County jail and is being held on $20,000 bond.
