Frankfort police are looking for a Louisville man who is accused of holding a couple against their will for several hours on Cline Street.
The suspect, Antoine Hoskins, has an outstanding warrant out of Louisville for a charge of violation of a domestic order, said Frankfort police Maj. Rob Warfel. Police do not believe Hoskins is still in Frankfort and are working with Louisville authorities to help find him.
Police believe the suspect’s significant other is related to one of the victims that was held in the home, Warfel said. Officers also believe that the suspect held the couple because he was trying to find her, he said.
Police were initially called to the home for a report of a burglary in progress, but when officers arrived they found a couple who said they’d been tied up in their home by a man with a gun, Warfel said.
Never miss a local story.
The couple managed to free themselves and run away from the home to call police, Warfel said. They weren’t injured.
As they were approaching the house, officers saw a dark Cadillac pulling away erratically, Warfel said. They tried to pursue the vehicle but were not able to catch up.
Officers could not be sure that the suspect had left in the Cadillac, so they used a police K-9 and a tactical response team to clear the house, Warfel said. They found that the suspect was no longer in the home.
