Columbus authorities are following up on a report that a 33-year-old woman was kidnapped early Monday at the intersection of Canty Place and Cusseta Road.
The Columbus victim told police officials that a 62-year-old slim black man with a "salt-and-pepper beard" kidnapped her at 2 a.m. The woman said she was not harmed, but the man poked her with a knife.
The suspect may be spotted in a gray van, officials.
No one was arrested in connection to the case.
Additional details concerning the incident were not released.
