The man accused of kidnapping and assaulting a woman early Thursday morning in Erlanger is now in custody in Grant County thanks to a tipster, according to police department spokesperson Jon Sterling. Brandon Foley, 25, is suspected in the kidnapping of a woman from an apartment complex on 3000 block of Lori Drive, Sterling said. Foley had "some type of relationship" with the woman who was kidnapped, according to police; the victim was recovered and taken to the hospital with injuries to her face and head. "The picture I saw (of the injuries) was pretty grotesque," Sterling said. "It's pretty inflammatory." The Grant County Jail said Foley faces charges in three counties: kidnapping in Kenton County; traffic charges in Grant County; and other warrants in Boone County. He will remain in Grant County until he sees a judge, which could be as early as Monday. Police became involved in the search for Foley around 3 a.m. Thursday, but Sterling couldn't immediately say how long the victim was held captive. Foley was taken into custody without incident just before 5 p.m. Thursday at a Wendy's restaurant in Dry Ridge, according to Kentucky State Police Lt. Charlie Loudermilk. Another patron who saw Foley's picture in the news noticed him and called state police.
